Starch Assay Kit (Colorimetric)User Manual
|Research Area:||Cell Metabolism|
|Assay Category:||Carbohydrates Metabolism|
|Sample Type:||Suitable for use with food samples|
Our Starch Assay Kit (Colorimetric) measures starch in food samples. First, starch is broken down into glucose monomers by amyloglucosidase. Glucose is then oxidized by glucose oxidase, producing D-gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide reacts specifically with the kit’s Colorimetric Probe and is detected with a spectrophotometric plate reader at 540-570nm. Starch levels in unknown samples are determined based on the provided starch standard curve.
