The Total Starch (AA/AMG) test kit is used for the measurement and analysis of total starch in cereal flours and food products.  This kit now contains an improved α-amylase that allows the amylase incubations to be performed at pH 5.0 (as well as pH 7.0). 

 

Advantages

• Very cost effective

• All reagents stable for > 12 years after preparation

• Simple format

• Mega-Calc™ software tool for hassle-free raw data processing

• Standard included

 

Principle:

       (α-amylase, 100°C ± DMSO)
(1) Starch granules + H2O → maltodextrins

                        (amyloglucosidase)
(2) Maltodextrins + H2O → D-glucose

                                 (glucose oxidase)
(3) D-Glucose + H2O + O2 → D-gluconate + H2O2

                                                                                   (peroxidase)
(4) 2H2O2 + p-hydroxybenzoic acid + 4-aminoantipyrine → 
                                                                       quinoneimine + 4H2

Kit size: 50/100 assays 

Method: Spectrophotometric at 510 nm

Total assay time: ~ 90 min

Detection limit: 1-100% of sample weight
