Glucose Hexokinase 5+1

Glucose Hexokinase 5+1

Glucose is the central energy source of the cells in the organism. The most common supply follows hydrolytic cleavage of polymeric carbohydrates, in general starch. Glucose is a monosaccharide with a postprandial concentration of 5 mmol/l in the blood and serves as an indispensable energy-supply for cellular functions. The glucose catabolism takes place via the glycolysis as the first step, followed by the citric acid cycle and oxidative phosphorylation.

Glucose regulations become executed for the diagnosis and course control of carbohydrate metabolism illnesses like the diabetes mellitus, neonatal hypoglycemia, idiopathic hypoglycemia and with insulinoma.

The present, on works of Schmidt as well as from Peterson and Young being based Hexokinase-method serves as a recognized reference method.

Intended use

Enzymatic in vitro test for the quantitative regulation (determination) of glucose in human serum, -plasma, -urine and liquor.
