  • Product overview

    Abcam's Glucose and Sucrose Assay Kit provides a convenient means for measuring glucose and sucrose levels from various biological samples (e.g. serum, plasma, body fluids, food, growth medium, etc.). To measure glucose level, glucose oxidase specifically oxidizes free-glucose generating a compound that reacts with the glucose probe to produce resorufin, which can be detected colorimetrically (OD570nm) or fluorometrically (Ex/Em 535/587). To measure sucrose, invertase can be added to the reaction to convert sucrose to free glucose and fructose, so total glucose level can be measured. Then the sucrose level = Total Glucose – Free Glucose.

  • Notes

    Glucose (C6H12O6; FW: 180.16) and sucrose (C12H22O11; FW:342.3) are the important fuel sources to generate universal energy molecule ATP. Measurement of glucose or sucrose level can be very important in both research and development process. Sucrose is a disaccharide which can be converted into one glucose and one fructose when adding Invertase.

    Sucrose (C12H22O11; FW:342.3) is a disaccharide composed of glucose (C6H12O6; FW: 180.16) and fructose (C6H12O6; FW:180.16). Sucrose can be broken down by different In the human body, sucrose can be broken down by sucrase and/or invertase into its components, which are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. Once inside the cells, both monosaccharides will be processed and enter the glycolysis pathway to ultimately produce energy in form of ATP.
