Product code: K-RHAMNOSE
The L-Rhamnose Assay Kit for the measurement of L-rhamnose in plant extracts, culture media/supernatants and other materials is a simple, rapid method.
L-Rhamnose occurs naturally in the L-form and is commonly present as a component of the carbohydrate moiety of eukaryotic glycoproteins and in plant cell wall polysaccharides. The most abundant occurrence of L-rhamnose is within the pectic fraction of plant cell wall polysaccharides. L-Rhamnose is commonly used as a non-metabolisable marker along with lactulose for dual-permeability testing in the diagnosis of intestinal diseases such as Crohn’s disease or coeliac disease.
Note for Content: The number of manual tests per kit can be doubled if all volumes are halved. This can be readily accommodated using the MegaQuantTM Wave Spectrophotometer (D-MQWAVE).
