K-FUCOSE | L-Fucose Assay Kit

Product code: K-FUCOSE

The L-Fucose test kit is a simple, rapid and reliable method, for the measurement and analysis of L-Fucose in plant extracts, biological samples and other materials. This kit can be used in the measurement of α-fucosidases that do not act on chromogenic substrates.


UV-method for the determination of L-Fucose in plant material,
polysaccharides, pharmaceuticals and other materials

(L-fucose dehydrogenase)
(1) L-Fucose + NADP+ → L-fucono-1,5-lactone + NADPH + H+

Kit size:    100 assays (manual) / 1000 (microplate)
/ 1020 (auto-analyser)

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:                  ~ 10 min
Detection limit:                 0.68 mg/L
Application examples:
L-Fucose is present as the main component in fucoidan (a marine
polysaccharide), foods, pharmaceuticals and other materials
(e.g. biological samples, etc.)
Method recognition:    Novel method
