60021 6-Chloro-3-indolyl caprylate [Rose caprylate]

14007 2-Hydroxyphenyl N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide sodium salt

50007 3',4'-Dihydroxyflavone-4' N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide
Protected by Glycosynth patents: European Patent 1438423 and US Patent 7,531,646.

70111 5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl beta-D-xylopyranoside

01007 5-Bromo-3-indolyl N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminide

38037 p-Nitrophenyl alpha-L-fucopyranoside

70018 5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl alpha-L-arabinopyranoside
Chromogenic substrate producing green-blue colonies when hydrolysed by bacteria.

38018 p-Nitrophenyl alpha-L-arabinopyranoside

38103 p-Nitrophenyl alpha-L-rhamnopyranoside
Chromogenic substrate for naringinase.

33414 D-Alanine 7-amido-4-methylcoumarin trifluoroacetate salt

31081 5-Bromo-6-chloro-3-indolyl alpha-D-mannopyranoside
Chromogenic substrate producing insoluble magenta colour; an alternative to X-mannopyranoside.

31094 5-Bromo-6-chloro-3-indolyl phosphate disodium salt
Water soluble phosphatase substrate producing an insoluble magenta coloured precipitate after hydrolysis. Useful as an alternative to the water-insoluble p-toluidine salt form and also to X-phosphate.

31180 5-Bromo-6-chloro-3-indolyl beta-D-ribofuranoside
Chromogenic substrate producing an insoluble magenta colour; an alternative to X-ribofuranoside. Covered by US Patent 7,323,488 and by European Patents 1436411 and 1438424.

70094 5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl phosphate disodium salt [X-Phos disodium salt]
Water-soluble phosphatase substrate. Very useful as a replacement for the water-insoluble and toxic p-toluidine salt form of X-Phos [CAS No. 6578-06-9].

01094 5-Bromo-3-indolyl phosphate disodium salt [Blue-Phos disodium salt]
Water-soluble phosphatase substrate. Gives a darker blue end product than X-Phos.

01180 5-Bromo-3-indolyl beta-D-ribofuranoside
Chromogenic substrate producing an insoluble dark blue colour; an alternative to X-ribofuranoside. Covered by US Patent 7,323,488 and by European Patents 1436411 and 1438424.

60051 6-Chloro-3-indolyl alpha-D-glucopyranoside
[Not for supply to the USA].

60180 6-Chloro-3-indolyl beta-D-ribofuranoside
Chromogenic substrate producing an insoluble rose colour; an alternative to X-ribofuranoside. Covered by US Patent 7,323,488 and by European Patents 1436411 and 1438424. [Not for supply to the USA].

29064 6-Chloro-4-methylumbelliferyl beta-D-glucuronide [CMUG]
Substrate showing superior performance over MUG (Product code 44064) when used for the detection of beta-glucuronidase producing E.coli in short-term assays. Compared with MUG, CMUG gives a much higher fluorescence with positive strains after 7h incubation.

87045 6-Chloro-4-trifluoromethylumbelliferyl beta-D-galactopyranoside [CTU-Gal]
Substrate which exhibits longer absorption/emission maxima (~385/500 nm) than 4MU-derived substrates (~365/450 nm). May be beneficial when levels of endogenous fluorescence in the sample preclude the use of 4MU-substrates.

86180 6-Fluoro-3-indolyl beta-D-ribofuranoside
Chromogenic substrate producing an insoluble pale red colour; an alternative to X-ribofuranoside.
Covered by US Patent 7,323,488 and by European Patents 1436411 and 1438424.

26180 3-Indoxyl-beta-D-ribofuranoside
Chromogenic substrate producing an insoluble dark grey blue colour; an alternative to X-ribofuranoside. Covered by US Patent 7,323,488 and by European Patents 1436411 and 1438424.

38180 p-Nitrophenyl beta-D-ribofuranoside
Chromogenic substrate for beta-D-ribofuranosidase which produces a water-soluble yellow colour on hydrolysis.
