Amino Acid Analysis

BSI offers amino acid analyses because an exact knowledge of protein or peptide quantities is required for further protein studies. Amino acid analysis is not only a suitable tool for precise determination of protein quantities, but also provides detailed information regarding the relative amino acid composition. The relative amino acid composition gives a characteristic profile for proteins, which is often sufficient for identification of a protein. We performed amino acid analyses using Water's ACQ-Tag method to derivatize amino acid followed by separating the derivatives by reversed-phase HPLC and quantities the derivatives by fluorescent detection. Other analytical services also available are: sequencing and mass spectrometry.
