β-Glucan (Yeast & Mushroom) Assay Kit (K-YBL) is suitable for the measurement and analysis of 1,3:1,6-beta-glucan, 1,3-β-glucan and α-glucan in yeast, mushroom (fungi), algae and higher plants preparations.
Please note this method is not applicable to the analysis of 1,3:1,6 β-glucan in the presence of cellulose (1,4-β-D-glucan).
We also supply the Enzymatic Yeast Beta-Glucan Assay Kit (K-EBHLG), an enzymatic procedure for the measurement and analysis of 1,3:1,6-beta-glucan in yeast. This kit measures 1,3-β-glucan as well. It does not give quantitative measurement of β-glucan in mushrooms, the reasons for which are currently being researched.
