About Glutamate:

GLUTAMATE, is an important chemical in general metabolism. It is also widely used as a flavor enhancer in the food industry. Consumption of foods containing monosodium glutamate (MSG) have been known to cause headaches, flushing, sweating, nausea, and more. Glutamate is also a crucial mammalian neurotransmitter that is believed to be involved in a number of neurological and psychiatric disorders such as lateral sclerosis, autism, and Alzheimer's disease.

How our L-Glutamate Quick Test Strips work:

 Assay Genie's L-Glutamate Quick Test Strips are based on Glutamate dehydrogenase catalyzed oxidation of glutamate in which the formed NADH reduces a chromogenic reagent. The intensity of the product color is directly proportional to the glutamate concentration in the sample.

Key Features:

  • Fast and sensitive. Use of 20 or 100 uL sample.
  • Semi-quantitative measurement between 0-300 mg/L (undiluted) L-Glutamate.
  • Sample treatment and assay can be performed in under 15 minutes.
