[Histonet] Alfa & Beta Amylase

From:anthony@histotechexchange.com



Dear Rene:

There are two types of Amylase, Alfa & Beta. Alfa will release Glucose and
maltose but Beta will only release maltose. You can get Diastase (meaning
it contains both Alfa & Beta)from Malt; try Fisher Scientific.

I would look into your procedure and ask your doctor if he is happy with
you saying you use Diastase when you are actually only using Alfa Amylase.

If you have the New Bancroft and Stevens it is on page 173.
Good luck and putting the subject in the header will get more people to
respond.

Yours truly,
