Pancreatic Amylase ELISA
1 h; 1 h; 10-20 min
Like lipase and elastase the Pancreatic Amylase is synthesized in the pancreas. In case of a chronic pancreatitis, Pancreatic Amylase is decreased. Some forms of disease (alcoholism, accidental trauma, ) are associated with a pancreatic insufficiency. In the routine laboratory Pancreatic Amylase has proved itself to be a genuine alternative to Elastase-I in stool diagnosis.
