General description

Elastin−Congo red is a substrate-dye conjugate and is used in agar medium to probe elastase activity. The presence of elastase functionality leads to cleavage of the dye from the elastin substrate.

Application

Elastin−Congo red has been used as a substrate for neutrophil elastase, salivary elastase and P. aeruginosa.

Other Notes

Elastin impregnated with Congo red dye.

Substrates

Substrate for the estimation of elastase.
