The QuickZyme total protein assay is used for the quantitative determination of all types of protein in hydrolyzed samples. The assay is based on the formation of a blue colored product from genipin with free amino acids. It measures the total amount of amino acids present in the hydrolyzed sample, with exception of proline and hydroxyproline. The amount of amino acids is a good measure for the amount of protein.
