Abstract :

The process of reducing saccharides in blood serum involves the application of some chemical reagents such as Fehling reagent test. The result of such test sometimes gave confusing results due to the formation of red color on the wall surface of the reaction vessel. In our method, we have developed a new technique via modified polymeric material with a new organic material sensitive for oxidation-reduction reaction. The color of the modified materials will changed from blue to colorless material (Figure 1), which can be used as a visible sign for the presence of reducing saccharide. Furthermore, a quantitative determination for reducing saccharides can also be obtained with a precise accuracy. The developed material has the following advantages 1. Colorimetric method for detection of reducing saccharide 2. Coast less materials 3. High accuracy in detection of reducing saccharides even with trace amounts 4. Durable and resistant to friction 5. Can be regenerated and reused for unlimited times with the same accuracy The new materials can replace Fehling test in our university students and research labs.
