The EnzChek® Ultra Xylanase Assay Kit features a quick and convenient mix-and-read format for the detection and monitoring of xylanase activity. The increase in fluorescence resulting from xylanase activity is measured using a fluorometer or fluorescence microplate reader.

See our complete line of Fluorescence Microplate assays.

• Detect concentrations of xylanase activity as low as 1.5 mU/mL
• Suitable for a broad pH range (pH 4 to 10)
• Format allows for continuous detection of xylanase activity
• Excitation/emission maxima of ~358/455 nm, well suited for DAPI filter settings

The EnzChek® Ultra Xylanase Assay Kit provides the speed, sensitivity, and convenience required for measuring xylanase activity or for screening xylanase inhibitors in a high-throughput format. The hydrolysis of xylosidic linkages within the included Xylanase Substrate (hemicellulose polysaccharides) results in the unquenching of the attached fluorescent dyes. This kit can be used for continuous detection of xylanase activity, and offers broad dynamic and pH ranges. Each kit contains sufficient substrate for ~500 assays in a 96-well microplate format. Additionally, the kit contains a fluorescent reference standard that can be used to quantify the xylanase activity.
