More Details

  • Glutamate is an important chemical in general metabolism. It is also widely used as a flavor enhancer in the food industry. Consumption of foods containing monosodium glutamate (MSG) has been known to cause headaches, flushing, sweating, nausea, and more. Glutamate is also a crucial mammalian neurotransmitter that is believed to be involved in a number of neurological and psychiatric disorders such as lateral sclerosis, autism, and Alzheimer's disease.

    BioAssay Systems' PractiChrom™ Glutamate Assay Kit is based on glutamate dehydrogenase catalyzed oxidation of glutamate in which the formed NADH reduces a chromogenic reagent. The intensity of the product color is directly proportional to the glutamate concentration in the sample.
