The client currently performs an enzyme activity assay internally. However, to measure several types of enzymes, the following challenges are yet to be overcome: operation is complex under the conditions of existing assay; and variances are observed in the measured value.
Existing assay method
- After an enzyme mixture is dissolved, an operator performs separation manually.
- Enzyme activity is measured by adding an enzyme-specific inhibitor and inactivating enzymes other than the target enzyme.
Therefore, the client has issued this open request to find an organization that has developed an easier, more precise assay method. Proposals only indicating that the client can perform the assay even if no actual data exist are also welcome. In addition to organizations that can design an assay method, organizations that can design enzyme-specific substrates, antibodies, inhibitors, etc., in order to simplify the assay, are eligible to participate.
