Maltose Assay Kit - Information

MALTOSE (C12H22O11) is a disaccharide, composed of two glucose units linked by an alpha bond. It is produced from the hydrolysis of glycogen or starch, serving as a source of energy for plants and animals. Maltose can be found in foods such as grains, and other processed products.

Assay Genie's maltose assay provides a simple, one step assay for measuring maltose. In this assay, maltose is converted to two glucoses, which are then oxidized to form a colored product. The color intensity of the product at 570 nm or fluorescence at Ex/Em = 530/585 nm is directly proportional to maltose concentration in the sample.


Quantitative determination of maltose in various biological samples such as serum, urine, food and beverages, etc.

Maltose Assay Kit - Key Features

  • Fast and sensitive. Use of 10 uL sample. Linear detection range 2 to 500 uM maltose in for colorimetric assays and 1 to 50 uM for flourimetric assays.
  • Convenient. The procedure involves adding a single working reagent, and reading the absorbance after 60 minutes. Room temperature assay. No 37°C heater is needed.
  • High-throughput. "Add-mix-read" type assay. Can be readily automated as a high-throughput 96-well plate assay for thousands of samples per day.
