Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme. An enzyme is a type of protein that catalyzes (causes or accelerates) chemical reactions in the body. ALP is produced mainly by the liver and bones but is also synthesized in smaller quantities by the intestines and kidneys.
In dairy industry, ALP is used as the marker for milk pasteurization. In fully pasteurized milk, the activity of ALP shall be quite low. This kit is then developed for this purpose.
