BOC Sciences' amino acid composition analysis service can use amino acid automatic analyzer and high-performance liquid chromatography to determine the amino acid composition of various samples.
Amino acids are a class of organic compounds containing amino and carboxyl groups, and are widely used in food, medicine, feed, cosmetics, additives and many other fields. Amino acids are structural units that make up proteins and peptides, endow proteins with specific molecular structures, and are also essential substances for maintaining normal life activities of organisms.
Amino acid composition analysis mainly studies the amino acid composition of proteins or peptides. It is an accurate quantitative standard in the study of peptides and proteins and a necessary step before the sequence determination of proteins or peptides. Amino acid composition analysis can provide strong evidence for confirming the primary structure of proteins, and can identify atypical amino acids present in proteins or peptides.
Plants, animals, microorganisms, food, feed, fertilizers, cosmetics, health products, etc.
Amino acid composition analysis can qualitatively and quantitatively determine the amino acid composition in a sample. We use amino acid automatic analyzer and high performance liquid chromatography to analyze the amino acid composition in the sample efficiently and accurately. The service mainly includes two important steps: (1) Hydrolysis of protein and peptide samples into free amino acid derivatives. (2) Separation and analysis of each amino acid derivative after hydrolysis, and then determine the composition of the amino acid in the sample and the content of each component. Our one-stop service includes the processing and analysis of samples provided by customers, the analysis of data and the completion of project reports.
Amino Acid Composition Analysis
Through the analysis of amino acid composition, the chemical structure characteristics of proteins or peptides, as well as the distribution of some characteristic active amino acids can be preliminarily understood, and scientific information can be provided for the research of proteins or peptides. We provide one-stop service for amino acid composition analysis, and carry out strict quality control for each analysis to ensure high precision and accuracy of analysis. Our amino acid automatic analyzer can detect a large number of samples at one time, and can directly analyze the processed sample solution. High-performance liquid chromatography does not require special reaction devices, and has the advantages of high efficiency, simplicity, speed, accuracy, and low price. It can partially or completely replace amino acid automatic analyzers for the analysis of amino acids in various samples.
There are eight essential amino acids for the human body: lysine, tryptophan, phenylalanine, methionine, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, and valine.
