The urine is chromatographed on a silica gel thin-layer plate. The sugars are located with naphthoresorcinol spray reagent and are identified by visual comparison with a sugar standard chromatographed on the same plate. If galactose is found, it is quantitated by an enzymatic method.(Prinz W, Meldrum W, Wilkinson L: A simple and rapid thin-layer chromatographic method for the identification of urinary carbohydrates.
