How to deplete Oxygen from enzyme assay?

I am looking for an easy way to deplete a system of oxygen.  I suspect
that the enzyme i am working on uses molecular oxygen in its mechanism and
would like to test it.  I have tried degassing my samples and reaction
vial with nitrogen, but have gotten messy results.  Enzyme linked assays
would be the easiest i think.

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
