  • Product overview

    Glucose Assay Kit (ab102517) provides direct measurement of glucose in various biological samples, and it is particularly suitable for serum and urine samples since it is unaffected by reducing substances, which can interfere with detection in oxidase-based kits. In this assay, glucose is specifically oxidized to generate a product which reacts with a dye to generate color (λ = 450 nm) whose intensity is proportional to glucose concentration. The method is rapid, simple, sensitive, and suitable for high throughput. The assay is also suitable for monitoring glucose level during fermentation and glucose feeding in protein expression processes. The kit can detect glucose concentrations in the range of 20µM-10mM.

  • Notes

    Glucose is an important fuel source to generate the universal energy molecule ATP. Serum glucose level is a key diagnostic parameter for many metabolic disorders.

  • Relevance
    Glucose (C6H12O6; FW: 180.16) is a ubiquitous energy source in most organisms, from bacteria to humans. The breakdown of carbohydrates produces mono- and disaccharides, most of which is glucose. Through glycolysis and TCA (citric acid cycle), glucose is oxidized to eventually form CO2 and water, generating the universal energy molecule ATP. Glucose is a primary source of energy for the brain and a critical component in the production of proteins and in lipid metabolism and therefore measurement of glucose level is a key diagnostic parameter for many metabolic disorders.

The main difference between these two glucose assays is that in ab65333 the probe reacts with hydrogen peroxide and gets oxidized to produce colored compound detectable at 570nm or at Ex/Em 535/587nm. In ab102517, the probe reacts with NADH (produced d...
