AffiASSAY® Starch Assay Kit (Fluorometric)
Size: 100 Assays
Our Starch Assay Kit (Fluorometric) measures starch in food samples. First, starch is broken down into glucose monomers by amyloglucosidase. Glucose is then oxidized by glucose oxidase, producing D-gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide reacts specifically with the kit’s Fluorometric Probe and is detected at ex. 530-570 nm/em. 590-600 nm. Starch levels in unknown samples are determined based on the provided starch standard curve.

Upon receipt, store the 10X Assay Buffer at room temperature. Store all other components at -20ºC. The Fluorometric Probe is light sensitive and must be stored accordingly. Avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
