K-GCROL | Glycerol Assay Kit

Product code: K-GCROL

The Glycerol test kit is a simple, reliable, rapid and accurate method for the measurement and analysis of Glycerol in beverages, foodstuffs and other materials.


UV-method for the determination of Glycerol in foodstuffs,
beverages and other materials

(1) Glycerol + ATP → L-glycerol-3-phosphate + ADP

(pyruvate kinase)
(2) ADP + PEP → ATP + pyruvate

(L-lactate dehydrogenase)
(3) Pyruvate + NADH + H+ → L-lactic acid + NAD+

Kit size:    70 assays (manual) / 700 (microplate)

The number of manual tests per kit can be doubled if all volumes are halved.
This can be readily accommodated using the MegaQuantTM Wave
Spectrophotometer (D-MQWAVE).

Method:                            Spectrophotometric at 340 nm
Reaction time:                  ~ 5 min
Detection limit:                 0.34 mg/L
