Subject: Fucoidan assay

I am looking for a simple colorimetric method of Fucoidan measurement/ assay, or something representative of such.
I have found 
B. Larsen. 1978. Fucoidan. In: J.A. Hellebust and J.S. Craigie. Handbook of Phycological Methods. Vol 2: 151-156
But this measures fucose and this varies in proportion between species.
What other methods are there of quantifying the fucoidan present in an extract as a % of dry weight.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Kind Regards
