General description

Carbohydrates are the most abundant biomolecules present in all living organisms. Carbohydrates have many functions, as structural components to the cell walls of bacteria and plants, or as energy storage in the form of starch and glycogen. Carbohydrates are also a major component of the human diet. The Total Carbohydrate Assay Kit can be used for measuring carbohydrates in a variety of samples, including food and beverage products.

Application

Total Carbohydrate Assay Kit has been used in the colorimetric measurement of carbohydrates in biological wastewater treatment systems.

Suitability

Suitable for measuring total carbohydrates in adherent or suspension cells, animal and plant tissues and food products, fruit juices & other beverages.

Principle

Total carbohydrate concentration is based on the phenol-sulfuric acid method in which polysaccharides are hydrolyzed and then converted to furfural or hydroxylfurfural. These compounds react with the Developer to generate a chromagen, which can be detected spectrophotometrically at 490 nm.
