The Lactose/Galactose (Rapid) test kit is used for the rapid test of lactose, D-galactose and L-arabinose in food and plant products. Galactose dehydrogenase can be used the measurement and analysis of both D-galactose and L-arabinose. Suitable for the analysis of lactose in “low-lactose” or “lactose-free” samples which contain high levels of monosaccharides. The reagents provided in this kit are also suitable for use with AOAC method 2006.06 – Lactose in milk.

Note for Content: The number of manual tests per kit can be doubled if all volumes are halved.  This can be readily accommodated using the MegaQuant™  Wave Spectrophotometer (D-MQWAVE).
