This programme demonstrates in a video lesson, the procedure in the Qualitative test for Carbohydrates. In this Biochemistry Laboratory Test, the Benedict's test procedure is demonstrated. Benedict's test distinguishes reducing sugars from non reducing sugars. The procedure covers the description of the laboratory instruments and materials that are used in such tests.
