Intended Use

An α-amylase test system is a device intended for the quantitative in vitro determination of α-amylase activity in serum, plasma and urine. This product is suitable for use on RX series analyser RX modena.

Clinical Significance

Amylase measurements are used primarily for the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).

Colorimetric Method

The method uses ethylidene blocked p-nitrophenyl-maltoheptaoside as substrate. The indicator enzyme α-glucosidase, used to release the p-nitrophenol, is also employed in the method. The terminal glucose of the substrate is chemically blocked preventing cleavage by the indicator enzymes.
