Description

1. TribUTE-F assay is an improved dietary intake estimation method based on fluorescence intensity. 2. The assay measures the amount of gypsum excreta in beetles. 3. Compared with microbalance measurements, the assay is more accurate and less time-consuming. 4. It is applied to evaluate the inhibitory effect of antifeedant on dietary intake of Tribolium castaneum.
