What are some precautions that must be taken for the experiment "To study the digestion of starch by salivary amylase and the effect of temperature and pH on it

Dear student,

Some precautions that must be taken for the experiment: To study the digestion of starch by salivary amylase and the effect of temperature and pH on it are:
- Add equal drops of iodine in all the samples while testing for starch.
- Temperature variation affects enzyme activity, so take the readings at a constant temperature for all the samples.
- Delay in sampling or the reaction time may affect the result. So, iodine drops must be added at fixed intervals in all samples.

Regards
