(1→3)-β-D-glucan Detection

The Glucatell®  and Fungitell® assay kits are specific for (1→3)-β-D-glucan. The assays are based upon a modification of the Limulus Amebocyte Lysate (LAL) pathway. The Glucatell reagent is processed to eliminate Factor C, and is therefore specific for (1→3)-β-D-glucan. The reagent does not react to other polysaccharides, including beta-glucans with different glycosidic linkages.
