I'm doing an experiment for my IB bio EE involving colorimetry. I'm not experienced at all with colorimetry, so I'm having some trouble planning it. The experiment is on enzyme kinetics, and I'm testing the effect of an inhibitor on the rate of digestion of starch by alpha-amylase. Currently, my plan is just to use a starch solution with an iodine indicator, add the amylase and inhibitor and measure the change in absorbance of a certain wavelength over time with the colorimeter, however, I'm worried that when I add the amylase and the inhibitor it'll affect the colour of the solution quite a lot. Will this be an issue, and if so is there a better method I could use to control for it?
Any help would be appreciated, this is my first time actually planning an experiment and I'm finding it difficult :)
