Does anybody know how to inhibit amylase completely in combination with keeping the
sample matrix intact?
In order to make a control material to check our erythrocyte sedimentation rate we
added eloHAES, an artificial starch-based colloid, to blood. This works fine for some
hours, after which amylase in the sample has degraded the eloHAES. Therefore I would
like to eliminate amylase activity.
