Lactose Assay Kit
Lactose (C12H22O11), also called milk sugar, is a disaccharide that consists of beta-D-galactose and alpha/beta-D-glucose through a β1-4 glycosidic linkage. Lactose is the major sugar and makes up 2-8% of milk. Simple, direct and high-throughput assays for lactose determination find wide applications.
Assay Genie's lactose assay uses specific enzyme-coupled reactions in which lactose is cleaved and the resulting galactose forms a colored product. The color intensity at 570nm or fluorescence intensity at 530nm/585nm is directly proportional to the lactose concentration in the sample.
For quantitative determination of lactose and evaluation of drug effects on lactose metabolism.
- Use as little as 20 uL samples. Linear detection range in 96-well plate: 17 to 2000 uM lactose for colorimetric assays and 6 to 100 uM for fluorimetric assays.
