Analysis of Normative Support for Measurements of Catalytic Activity for Biologically and Chemically Active Substances
- 27 Downloads
We analyze the normative and methodological support for measurements of catalytic activity for biological and chemical substances. We consider the results of work by experts at the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC), who have studied optimized conditions for measuring catalytic activity concentration of individual enzymes in human blood serum. We have defined the problem of developing a reference standard for the unit of catalytic activity.
