UV-method for the determination of Maltose, Sucrose and D-Glucose in foodstuffs, beverages and other materials

(1) Maltose + H2O → 2D-glucose

(2) Sucrose + H2O → D-glucose + D-fructose

(3) D-Glucose + ATP → G-6-P + ADP

      (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase)
(4) G-6-P + NADP+ → gluconate-6-phosphate + NADPH + H+

Kit size:                             * 34 assays of each

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).

Method:                            Spectrophotometric at 340 nm
Reaction time:                  ~ 25 min
Detection limit:                1.5 mg/L
