Inquiry: Ethanol Assay Kit (ab65343) Do you have a kit specific to Methanol , if not can we adapt the Ethanol kit for Methanol measurement.
Asked on Aug 22 2012
Unfortunately we do not have a kit to assay for methanol conc.
Although I have not come across any instances in which the ethanol assay kit is used for methanol, it may be theoretically possible. The ethanol assay kit principle involves the conversion of ethanol to H2O2 by alcohol oxidase. This oxidase can also act on methanol to generate H2O2. Therefore it looks likely that the customer can use the ethanol assay kit for methanol, but some slight optimization/standardization might be in order for most efficient results.
Hope this information has been helpful for you. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
