What is Amylase used for?

It is a digestive enzyme / special protein produced by the pancreas and salivary glands.  Salivary amylase is responsible for breaking down starch in the mouth and converting it into maltose.  Pancreatic amylase passes through a duct from the pancreas to the small intestine where the digestive process is completed through converting starch into glucose.  The glucose is then absorbed into the blood and carried throughout the body.

Damage or inflammation to the pancreas can result in under / over production of amylase which can be a sign of pancreatic disorder which includes pancreatic pseudocyst, pancreatic abscess, pancreatic cancer, gallbladder disease, mumps or ectopic pregnancy.  For more information on pancreatic cancer, please click here. The Randox assay is used for the quantitative in vitro determination of amylase activity in serum, urine and plasma.
