More Details

PLASMIN ( is a serine protease that is a key enzyme in the process of fibrinolysis. Plasmin is released into circulation as its inactive form, plasminogen, which can be activated by enzymes such as urokinase. The plasmin/plasminogen system has been studied for its role in inflammation, degradation of the extracellular matrix, and wound healing. BioAssay Systems’ DPLM-100 kit provides a convenient colorimetric method to measure plasmin activity. In this assay, plasmin hydrolyzes a synthetic substrate to release p-nitroanilide (pNA), which absorbs at 405 nm. The increase in absorbance at 405 nm is directly proportional to the enzyme activity.

Does this kit come with plasmin?

No, this kit does not come with a plasmin positive control.

Why is the signal from my samples is very low?

It is possible that much of the plasmin is present in the form of plasminogen, which is inactive and will not react with the substrate in the kit. Plasminogen needs to be activated, for example by incubation with streptokinase or urokinase.

My kit was delayed during shipping, will it still work?

This kit is stable for 10 days at room temperature, so the kit is most likely fine.
