Galactose (C6H12O6; Mwt: 180.16) and Lactose (C12H22O11; Mwt: 342.3) are naturally occurring sugars. Lactose contains one galactose and one glucose unit. Some humans, especially infants lack the enzyme necessary to digest galactose. This will lead to the accumulation of galactose in blood (Galactosemia) causing enlarged liver, renal failure, cataracts and brain damage. BioVision’s Galactose and Lactose Assay Kit provides a convenient means for direct measurement of galactose and lactose levels from various biological samples (e.g. serum, plasma, body fluids, food, growth medium, etc.).
