Galactose-1-phosphate uridytransferase (GALT) activity is determined by measuring its reaction products over time. GALT catalyzes the conversion of galactose-1-phosphate to glucose-1-phosphate. Further reactions with glucose-1-phosphate reult in the reduction of NADP+ to NADPH. The amount of fluorescent NADPH produced is proportional to the GALT enzyme activity.
Astoria-Pacific also supplies Dried Blood Spot Controls, Unassayed (Normal and Deficient) for Biotinidase and GALT testing. Use with your with SPOTCHECK Flow or Pro systems.
