Lipase (pancreatic) test
About the parameter
This assay is using the lipase enzymatic method DGGR, which is well known as a high-sensitive and specific method for detection of pancreatitis in animals.
It is a highly effective biomarker and has shown a >95% concordant by comparison with tissue and species specific quantitative immunoassay.
The combination of colipase and bile acid makes the reaction specific for pancreatic lipase without interference of esterases and lipolytic enzymes.
The measured absorbance is proportional to the lipase activity in the sample.
Fresh serum or lithium heparin plasma.
If samples should be stored ensure protection from light!
