the manufacturer should also have defined the unit (eg umoles substrate converted/minute). you can then compare that to the definition of IU for your enzyme.


the units used may be IU and they're telling you how many are in a gram of material.

talent does what it can
genius does what it must
i used to do what i got paid to do
