Megazyme’s Lactose Assay Kit (K-LOLAC) has been accepted as an Official First Action Method: AOAC 2020.08. It is the only enzymatic method that has been validated by a multi-laboratory evaluation.
Megazyme’s Single Lab Validation paper has been published and is now available in Open Access here.
Benefits of K-LOLAC over Common Enzymatic Assays
SENSITIVE – Can quantify lactose at lower limits than all other available enzymatic assays - essential for low-lactose and lactose-free products.
EFFICIENT – First sequential enzymatic assay for lactose, i.e. reduced analyst hands-on time and increased cost effectiveness.
SELECTIVE – Uses an exclusive enzyme which hydrolyses lactose more selectively than competing methods leading to reduced overestimation.
ACCURATE – Method includes 15 min pre-incubation step to remove high background glucose levels, allowing rapid accurate measurement in low-lactose and lactose-free products.
