Blocked 4-nitrophenyl-α-maltoheptaoside

CAS: 109055-07-4
Molecular Formula: C55H79NO38
Molecular Weight: 1362.2
Purity:  98%

High purity Blocked 4-nitrophenyl-α-maltoheptaoside for use in research, biochemical enzyme assays and in vitro diagnostic analysis.

One vial contains the same quantity of Blocked 4-nitrophenyl-α-D-maltoheptaoside as in one vial of "cereal α-amylase assay reagent" (i.e. 54.5 mg/vial). This can be used in a two-step format to assay α-amylases at pH and temperature values outside the range in which the standard reagent can be used. This preparation does not contain added enzymes.
