BCIG and MUG - Buy Direct From the Manufacturer


Glycosynth is a specialist manufacturer of very high quality enzyme substrates, which are otherwise difficult to obtain at reasonable prices. Recently we introduced novel substrates for the detection of beta-ribofuranosidase activity which may have important new applications in diagnostic microbiology.

Save time and money on detection of E.coli using inexpensive high quality enzyme substrates. Such as:

MUG (4-Methylumbelliferyl beta-D-glucuronide) and
BCIG (5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl beta-D-glucuronide) (X-glucuronide)

X-glucuronide CHA salt, (BCIG CHA salt) 70065
Used in a medium for the simultaneous membrane filtration enumeration of E.coli and coliforms from drinking water, for the histochemical localisation of beta-glucuronidase.

X-glucuronide sodium salt, (BCIG sodium salt) 70066
A more soluble alternative to the CHA salt form

We have also created novel chromogenic substrates that generate insoluble colours such as black or brown, which can be used to contrast with our conventional blue or red chromogens.

Our comprehensive range of products include: X-Gal, X-alpha-Gal, IBDG, PNP-glucuronide, 4-MU beta-D-glucopyranosides and many other substrates all at very competitive prices.

We are a small company with skilled and dedicated staff, one of our main strengths is our high level of customer care.
