Inside Applications: Assessing pancreatic trypsin activity


  • Trypsin activity as a measure for acute pancreatitis
  • Fluorimetric kinetic assay performed with the POLARstar Omega microplate reader
  • Only 1.5 µL of AMC-derivative trypsin substrate needed


Testing pancreatic trypsin activity in a POLARstar Omega microplate reader from BMG LABTECH is quick and accurate. It allows for a much higher throughput of the fluorescent 96-well microplate format samples and has reduced the expense of costly consumables required for testing pancreatic trypsin in a spectrophotometer.
