Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) Activity Assay Kit

  • Cat.No.:E-BC-K056-M

  • Detection instrument: Microplate reader(450 nm)

To Purchase E-BC-K056-M

  • 96T
Price: $150

Detection principle

Under the presence of G6PDH, glucose-6-phosphoric acid is oxidized to 6-PG. In this reaction, NADP+ is reduced to NADPH. Under the action of electron coupling reagent 1-MPMS, NADPH reducts wST-8 to form orange formazan, which has the maximum absorption peak at about 450 nm. Formazan generated in the reaction system is proportional to the activity of G6DPH in the sample.

Dilution of sample

It is recommended to take 2~3 samples with expected large difference to do pre-experiment before formal experiment and dilute the sample according to the result of the pre-experiment and the detection range (0.01-50 U/L).

The recommended dilution factor for different samples is as follows (for reference only):

Sample type

Dilution factor

10% Mouse liver tissue homogenate


10% Rat kidney tissue homogenate


10% Rat spleen tissue homogenate


10% Mouse brain tissue homogenate


Note: The diluent is reagent 1.
