Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The enzyme is normally present in numerous tissues including the fibroblasts and white blood cells. Beta-glucosidase activity is measured by following the release of the fluorescent 4-methylumbelliferone.(Raghaven SS, Topol J, Kolodny EH: Leukocyte beta-glucosidase in homozygotes and heterozygotes for Gaucher disease. Am J Hum Genet 1980;32:158-173)
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.
