Angiotensin Converting Enzyme, Serum
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The method for quantitative serum angiotensin converting enzyme is based on the spectrophotometric quantitation of N-(3-[2-furyl]acryloyl)-L-phenylalanylglycylglycine to furylacylolphenylalanine and glycylglycine with concomitant decrease in absorbance at 340 nm.

Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
