KB03006 | Polyphenol Quantification Assay Kit (Folin Ciocalteu Method)

204.00372.00 TAX excl.

BQC Polyphenol Quantification Assay Kit (Folin Ciocalteu Method) is a quick, easy, and reproducible assay to quantify phenolic compounds in a wide variety of samples.

Polyphenols are naturally occurring compounds largely found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, flowers, bark cereals and beverages.

Polyphenols have attracted great interest due to growing evidence of their beneficial effect on human health. They have been reported to exhibit anti-carcinogenic, anti-atherogenic, anti-ulcer, anti-thrombotic, anti-inflammatory, immune modulating, anti-microbial, vasodilatory, and analgesic effects. Polyphenols are also highly demanded compounds for the food industry as natural additives due to their antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory potential.
