A colorimeter can be used in many enzyme assays, some of which are described here and can be accessed from the menu list. Different assays are suitable for a variety of different investigations including the effects of:
  • temperature
  • pH
  • concentration of substrate
  • concentration of enzyme
  • competitive and non-competitive inhibitors

Using the colorimeter connected to a computer with the USB cable supplied and free software sophisticated studies of enzyme kinetics are possible.

We particularly recommend dopa-oxidase as a safe, simple and inexpensive assay that can be used for everything from a first introduction to enzymes up to complex studies of enzyme kinetics and inhibition.
