Order No.: EC0189Lactoperoxidase (LPO) is a peroxidase naturally existing in milk. With the presence of hydrogen peroxide, it is capable of oxidizing thiocyanate ions to produce products with broad antimicrobial activity. Lactoperoxidase has an important role in the dairy cattle immune system. Lactoperoxidase is one of the most heat-stable enzymes found in milk. Pasteurization cannot deactivate it completely. Ultra-high-temperature processing will deactivate it completely. Hence, LPO is an internal index for monitoring and evaluating heat process intensity, testing the LPO activity level has been widely used in dairy production industry.During the heat treatment of milk processing, the level heat intensity is related to the nutritional value of milk. By testing the LPO activity in milk, the nutritional value in the sample can be determined. High volume LPO indicates the milk kept most of its nutrients.Lactoperoxidase Test Kit uses colrimetry, can quickly quantitate the LPO activity level efficiently.
