Invertase Activity Assay Kit

Invertase (b-fructofuranosidase, EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of sucrose to fructose and glucose. Invertases cleave at the O-C(fructose) bond, whereas a related enzyme sucrase (EC cleaves at the O-C(glucose) bond. A wide range of microorganisms produce invertase and can, thus, utilize sucrose as a nutrient. Invertase assay finds wide applications in environmental (e.g. soil), agricultural and food (confectionery) industry.

Assay Genie's Invertase activity Kit provides a convenient and ultra-sensitive colorimetric and fluorimetric means to measure invertase activity. In the assay, invertase cleaves sucrose, resulting in the formation of fructose and glucose, which is determined by a colorimetric (570nm) or fluorimetric method (Ex/Em = 530/585nm). The assay is simple, sensitive, stable and high-throughput adaptable.


For quantitative determination of invertase/sucrase activity

Key Features

  • Safe. Non-radioactive assay.
  • Sensitive and accurate. As low as 0.007 U/L invertase activity can be quantified.
  • Homogeneous and convenient. "Mix-incubate-measure" type assay. No wash and reagent transfer steps are involved.
  • Robust and amenable to HTS: can be readily automated on HTS liquid handling systems for processing thousands of samples per day.
