Galactose Assay Kit 

Galactose (C6H12O6) is a monosaccharide that is found in dairy products, sugar beets, gums and mucilages. It is also synthesized in mammals, where it forms part of glycolipids and glycoproteins in several tissues. It forms the disaccharide lactose when combined with glucose. Simple, direct and high-throughput assays for galactose determination find wide applications.

Assay Genie's  galactose assay uses specific enzyme-coupled reactions to form a colored product. The color intensity at 570nm or fluorescence intensity at 530nm/585nm is directly proportional to the galactose concentration in the sample.


For quantitative determination of galactose and its metabolism.

Key Features

  • Use as little as 20 uL samples. Linear detection range in 96-well plate: 10 to 1000 uM galactose for colorimetric assays and 10 to 100 uM for fluorimetric assays.
