New amylase substrate and assay procedure.


This report describes a new procedure for serum amylase assay. A novel substrate, dyed amylopectin, is used that combines the advantages of saccharogenic and amyloclastic methods. Serum amylase hydrolyzes the dyed amylopectin into ethanol-soluble fragments, which are quantified colorimetrically after serum proteins and unhydrolyzed substrate are… (More)
