D-Glucose Anhydrous is an important naturally ocurring polysaccharide in plant and animal cells. This simple sugar is an irreplaceable energy source for all life, making it an invaluable tool in cell culture.
bioWORLD's Molecular Biology Grade D-Glucose Anhydrous is extensively tested for bacterial contamination as well as chemical impurities. It is highly soluble in aqueous solutions, which can be sterilized via autoclaving or sterile-filtering. For direct use in cell culture, a 20% sterile solution is available for purchase.
To measure glucose uptake in vivo, 2-Deoxy-D-Glucose is often used. When used with Fehling's Reagents, the aldehyde group on Glucose can be converted to Carboxylic Acid.
bioWORLD's products are supplied for LABORATORY RESEARCH USE ONLY. The product may not be used as a drug, agricultural or pesticidal product, food additive or as a household chemical.
