To all using Glucose oxidase endogenous peroxidase blocking, be aware that 
Sigma has discontinued the beta-D(+) glucose used for this blocking.  Some 
have tried another glucose as a substitute and the peroxidase was not 

Since I tout this highly useful peroxidase blocking method, I found a 
source of the glucose

ICN Cat#100953 beta-D Glucose.  this contain up to 10% of alpha-isomer, 
although Sigma's contained only 4%.

Hopefully this will not be discontinued as Sigma has done.  If there are 
any doubts, call Sigma Technical Services and ask them for a source of this 

Never thought there would be so much difference in a glucose molecule
