Glucatell®  Glucatell

Product Description

The Glucatell® assay kit is specific for (1→3)-β-D-glucan. The assay is 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.

Product Applications:

    • Analyzing final products for (1→3)-β-D-glucan
    • Investigating LAL Out of Specification results
    • Qualifying raw materials
    • Monitoring cellulosic filter extractables
    • Monitoring fungal fermentation processes
    • Analyzing fermentation and cell culture media
    • Monitoring airborne glucan burden

 💡 For the clinical application of glucan testing we offer the optimized Fungitell® kit.
