α-Amylase Reagent (Ceralpha) (R-CAAR4)

Is the Ceralpha Alpha-Amylase Assay Reagent (R-CAAR4) or the Amylase HR Assay Reagent (R-AMHR4) preferable for use a pH 6-7?
The Ceralpha Alpha-Amylase reagent (R-CAAR4) can only be used in the pH range 5.0-6.0, as stated in the data sheet.  To assay amylase at pH 6-7 you will n...
