|Product Overview:||Starch Assay Kit is used for measuring starch levels.|
|Description:||Starch is a complex carbohydrate consisting of a large number of glucose units. All plants contain starch, present as amylose, (linear α-1,4 linked polymer) and amylopectin, (highly α-1,6 branched α-1,4 polymer).Starch generally contains 0-25% amylose and 75-100% amylopectin. The Starch Assay Kit provides an easy, convenient method to measure starch levels in a variety of samples. In the assay, starch is hydrolyzed to glucose which is oxidized to generate color (λmax= 570 nm) and fluorescence (Ex/Em = 535/587 nm). The assay can detect starch at 0.0004 to 2 mg/mL.|
