Glucose Assay Kit ab102517 provides direct measurement of glucose in biological samples. 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 the glucose assay protocol, 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.
Glucose assay protocol summary:
- add reaction mix to sample and standard wells
- incubate for 30 min
- analyze with a microplate reader

RelevanceGlucose (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.
