New UF-Amino Station Offers Simultaneous Multicomponent Analysis for Enhanced Throughput
Analyze 38 amino acid components in just nine minutes!
Two major problems exist with traditional amino acid analysis techniques. The first technique (ion-exchange chromatography with postcolumn derivatization) allows many components to be analyzed at once but the method run times are long. The second technique (reverse-phase HPLC with pre-column derivatization) enables faster analysis but the number of analyzed components is limited. As a result, chemists are forced to make a decision to either analyze a large number of components or have a fast method.
UF-Amino Station overcomes these limitations. Jointly developed by Shimadzu and Ajinomoto Co., Inc., it features a special-purpose, fast analysis column and a LCMS-2020 mass spectrometer, which supports ultra-fast analysis speeds, to achieve the simultaneous analysis of 38 amino acid and amino acid-related components* in just nine minutes. Additionally, it automates the derivatization reaction to eliminate the need for cumbersome pretreatment procedures by manual operation.
UF-Amino Station is an excellent tool for the analysis of food
products, such as meat and fermented foods containing many
impurity components, and for the biochemical analysis of culture fluid.
Opening Up a New World of Amino Acid Analysis
The high selectivity of UF-Amino Station permits the analysis of amino acids in meat extract, which is difficult by PTC precolumn derivatization and UV detection due to the effects of impurity components.
