proteolytic activity

the aim of the study was to propose a validated, rapid and effective UV spectrophotometric method to determine protease activity.
Method validation is an established requirement in all laboratory practice analysis. The method was validated through the following analytical parameters; specifity, linearity, robustness, detection and quantification limits, precision (repeat-ability and intermediate precision) and accuracy.
