Fruit sugar metabolism kits
- For quantitative determination of fruit sugars and/or invertase
- Simple, direct and high-throughput assays
- Low input
- 40-60 min. protocols
These assays can be used for quantitative determination of the fruit sugars fructose or sucrose present in a wide variety of samples, including serum, plasma, urine, saliva, milk, culture medium, food, beverage, agriculture and more.
Invertase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of sucrose to fructose and glucose. A wide range of micro-organisms produce invertase and can, thus, utilize sucrose as a nutrient. The invertase activity can easily be determined within 40 minutes with our non-radioactive invertase assay.
