myo-Inositol Assay Kit

The myo-Inositol Assay Kit is a reliable and accurate enzymatic UV-method for the specific measurement and analysis of myo-inositol in foods, dairy products and various other materials.

Phytic acid content of samples with very low levels of free myo-inositol can also be determined using K-INOSL. This can be achieved by measuring the amount of myo-inositol released after de-phosphorylation of phytic acid with the enzymes phytase and alkaline phosphatase, as used with the Megazyme Phytic Acid/Total Phosphorus Assay Kit (K-PHYT).

Not suitable for the determination of myo-inositol in baby formula.
