RSID™-Saliva is a lateral flow immunochromatographic strip test designed to detect the presence of human salivary-amylase, an enzyme found in human saliva; the enzyme’s physiological role is to aid in the digestion of dietary starches.
RSID™-Saliva is specific and has numerous advantages over current enzymatic methods for amylase detection, including increased sensitivity, specificity, and speed.
RSID™ – Saliva uses two anti-human salivary amylase, monoclonal antibodies, in a lateral flow format, that detects the presence of salivary amylase, rather than the activity of the enzyme
