Intended use:

For In-vitro diagnostic use. Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the quantitative determination of human pancreatic elastase in feces as an aid in the diagnosis of the exocrine pancreatic function.

General Information:

Pancreatic Elastase is a proteolytic enzyme exclusively produced in pancreas. It is stable during the intestinal passage and is even accumulated in a sixfold concentration in stool, compared to the concentration in the duodenal juice. The widely utilized ELISA for the quantitative determination of pancreatic elastase in feces enables to obtain a quick and reliable diagnosis and follow-up of an exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, which may be caused by:

  • Chronic pancreatitis
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Cholelithiasis
  • Hereditary Pancreatitis
  • Chronical- inflammatory bowel disease
  • Pancreatic carcinoma
  • Autoimmunologically caused pancreatitis
  • Shwachman-Diamond-Syndrome
  • Zollinger-Ellison-Syndrome
