(1-3)-β-D-Glucan is the main cell wall component of most fungi, such as Candida, Aspergillusand Fusarium, etc. and does not exist in bacteria, virus or human cells. Fungus (1-3)-β-D-Glucan Assay is based on spectrophotometry for the quantitative detection of (1-3)-β-D-Glucan in human serum. It offers a diagnostic reference for invasive fungal diseases.
1.Microplate reader detection at 405nm using kinetic chromogenic method: Matches with international standard.
2.High throughput and rapid detection: It takes only 40 minutes to complete diagnosis for 90 sets of samples
(1-3)-β-D-glucan is widely present in the fungal cell wall and acts as a specific biomarker for fungal infection. The glucan specifically binds to factor G in the Main Reagent, activating its serine protease zymogen. The cascade of reactions changes the absorbance of the substrate and quantifies the (1-3)-β-D-glucan concentration.
