This kit is intended for the quantitative in vitro determination of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) activity in blood specimens dried on filter paper as an aid in screening newborns for G6PD deficiency using the GSP instrument.
The assay is based on the oxidation of glucose-6-phosphate by the G6PD enzyme present in the sample. At the same time NAPD is reducted to a fluorescent NAPDH, which is measured with excitation wacelength at 340 nm and emission at 460 nm.
