AquaSpark™ alpha-D-galactoside - 10 mM in DMSO, Patent pending
AquaSpark™ α-D-galactoside is a dioxetane-based substrate for the luminescence detection of α-galactosidase activity. It is the first single-compound chemiluminescent substrate commercially available for the detection of α-galactosidase activity. α-galactosidase assays are used in molecular biology to monitor the transcriptional activity of the GLA gene that is correlated with metabolic diseases or gene mutations. In microbiology the α-galactosidase activity is used to detect specific bacteria such as α-galactosidase positive Salmonella strains (Salmonella Enteritidis RKI 05/07992).
