Prospects for an Assay Technique Based on Volatile Enzyme Products
After considering a simple mathematical model (1) similar to that used for the thermal enzyme probe (2), it was decided to explore (3) an assay technique in which immobilized enzyme catalyzed reactions yielding volatile products are interfaced to a relatively inexpensive mass spectrometer, as shown in Fig. 1.
