Assay Kits

Megazyme biochemical assay kits cater to a wide range of industries such as food, cereals and dietary fiber, dairy, analytical laboratories, animal feed and nutrition, biofuels, biotechnology, wine, malting and brewing, and research. When coupled with the various analyzers available from Megazyme, a bespoke solution for users at every level is available. Many Megazyme methods have been validated by international bodies and in most cases, a number of different assay kit formats (manual, microplate, auto-analyser) are available.

Enzymatic Assay Portal

Enzymes

Innovative recombinant technology and purification techniques have enabled Megazyme to produce and supply an extensive and continually expanding portfolio of highly pure enzymes that have widespread use in analytical, diagnostic and research applications throughout various industries. We have a wide range of analytical enzymes, carbohydrate active enzymes and glycobiology enzymes applicable for food, feeds, cereals, brewing, wine and biofuels research.

Enzyme Substrates

Enzyme Substrates

Soluble chromogenic substrates are useful for the quantitative assay of enzyme solutions using the standard curve available for each product while insoluble chromogenic substrates are mostly employed qualitatively for the detection of specific enzyme activities in gels or plate screening experiments. Colourimetric oligosaccharides are soluble, chemically defined, functionalised oligosaccharides that can be used for the specific assay of exo- or endo-glycosyl hydrolases and are suitable for use with automated analyzer systems.

Enzyme Substrates

Carbohydrates

Megazyme’s chromogenic substrates provide the most convenient methods for the assay of hydrolytic enzymes but as the native substrates, polysaccharides and oligosaccharides can give the truest insight into their mechanism of action, active site requirement, binding affinities and activities. Polysaccharides can often be employed for reducing sugar or viscometric assays while oligosaccharides are widely used as chromatographic standards for HPLC/HPAEC-PAD analysis or as defined substrates in enzyme characterisation studies.

Key Products:

Please see below a selection of our key products, used by customers to determine presence and/or quantity of a particular analyte in a sample:

Dietary Fiber

Dietary Fiber

We are a global leader in the measurement of dietary fiber offering best in class measurement solutions. Whether you want to measure total dietary fiber or a specific dietary fiber component we have you covered with a range of internationally validated methods.

Starch

We offer an extensive set of externally validated methods for the measurement of total starch, digestible and resistant starch, starch damage and starch components such as amylose and amylopectin.

Fructan

We are the only company to offer assay kits specifically for the measurement of fructan. Fructan including inulin, levan and branched fructan, and fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are easily measured using our accredited methods.

Lactose

Lactose

Our assay kits accurately quantify lactose in standard and lactose free products. Our K-LOLAC assay is the first and only approved AOAC method for the measurement of lactose in lactose-free products.

Lactic Acid

Lactic Acid

Our portfolio also offers assay kits suitable for the measurement of D/L-Lactic acid separately or concurrently. These kits are capable of quantifying levels of D/L-Lactic acid in multiple sample types such as wine, meat and dairy products. Methods based on these assay principles have been accepted by multiple accreditation bodies.
