What is Glucose assay used for?

Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body. The body obtains glucose through the digestion of the sugar and starch in carbohydrates. Glucose is vital and interacts with the digestive and endocrine system. Due to this it is imperative to maintain glucose levels within the normal range.
