A simple assay technique for pancreatic lipase.


A simple and inexpensive procedure is described to include pancreatic lipase in the protocol for evaluation of pancreatic function by duodenal aspiration. The method involves dilution with an albumin solution, a 2-hr incubation with a commercially available substrate mixture, and manual titration with a burette. Results comparable to assay with a pH-stat were obtained. Assay for pancreatic lipase is recommended as a part of the diagnostic procedure of duodenal aspiration.
