Abstract:
Data interpretation and comparison in enzyme assays can be challenging because of the complex nature of the environment and variations in methods employed. This letter provides an overview of common enzyme assays, the need for methods standardization, and solutions addressing some of the concerns in microplate fluorimetric assay approaches.
