This kit contains 100 assays.
To satisfy the need for an extremely simple, yet quantitative and reliable, procedure for the measurement of total starch, Megazyme produces, and offers a total starch assay kit based on the use of thermostable a-amylase and amyloglucosidase (McCleary et al.). This method has been adopted by AOAC (Official Method 996.11) and
AACC (Method 76.13).
More recently, thermostable a-amylases that are active and stable at lower pH values have become available. Consequently, we have updated our total starch methodology to incorporate such an enzyme.
