KB03015 | Anthocyanins Assay Kit

115.00278.00 TAX excl.

Anthocyanins Assay Kit, is an easy, fast and reliable method for detecting anthocyanins in solution. This kit is based on the determination of the total monomeric anthocyanin concentration by the pH differential method. It is a rapid and simple spectrophotometric method and is based on anthocyanin structural transformation. This occurs with a change in pH (from colored to colorless at two different pHs).

Anthocyanins represent the most important group of water-soluble pigments in the visible region detectable by the human eye. These pigments are responsible for the different colors ranging from red to blue. They are present in various fruits, vegetables, and cereals and accumulate in cell vacuoles.
