Pancreatic elastase Turbilatex is a non-invasive in vitro diagnostic method used to monitorize pancreatic function, revealing pancreatic insufficiency in the patient.
Pancreatic elastase Turbilatex is based on specific and stable monoclonal antibodies that provide the required specificity and sensibility. Moreover, as all Turbilatex products are customer friendly and liquid and ready to be used.
Pancreatic elastase is produced in the acinar cells of the pancreas. A reduced level of this protein in the gastrointestinal tract is related to pancreatic insufficiency. It typically occurs as a result of progressive pancreatic damage, because of several pathological conditions.
Human pancreatic elastase 1 (E1) remains undegraded during intestinal tract, which makes pancreatic elastase a perfect biomarker.
