Amino Acid Analysis

In many cases an exact knowledge of protein quantities is required for protein chemistry applications. Amino Acid Analysis is a suitable tool for precise determination of protein quantities, and also provides detailed information regarding the relative amino acid composition and free amino acids. The relative amino acid composition gives a characteristic profile for proteins, which is often sufficient for identification of a protein. It is often used to support decisions involving the selection of proteases for protein fragmentation.
The analysis procedure includes:
  • Hydrolysis
  • Separation, Detection and Quantification
