K-FUCOSE | L-Fucose Assay Kit
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
(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
Method: Spectrophotometric at 340 nm
Reaction time: ~ 10 min
Detection limit: 0.68 mg/L
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
