Carbohydrates serve as energy sources and as structural elements in cells and are essential to several metabolic processes. Carbohydrate metabolism plays an important role in many disease states such as diabetes, obesity, and galactosemia. Therefore, sensitive detection of carbohydrates is important for metabolic studies. A large variety of colorimetric or fluorometric assay kits are available for measurement of various carbohydrates including monosacccharides (glucose, galactose, fructose), disaccharides (sucrose, maltose, lactose), and polysaccharides (glycogen, starch). In addition, sensitive insulin and glucagon ELISA kits are offered.
