Amino Acid Analysis

A quantitative determination of the content of the different amino acids in a sample is offered on a commercial basis.

Information Update

Unfortunately we have to announce that the Amino Acid Laboratory will close its operations on September 1.

Starting this year we are fewer persons working in the lab. This will sometimes result in longer response times for analysis results than the 5 working days that normally apply. Express analysis can only be received after agreement with us prior to ordering and may take longer than 2 working days. 

What can we do for you?

After 24 h hydrolysis with 6 M HCl your sample will be run on one of our two different analysers. Amounts down to picomole can be detected. The result will be a quantitative amino acid analysis. Different kinds of samples can be analysed in our laboratory. For example; proteins, peptides, separation gels, amino acid derivatives, fossils, homepatic samples, urea, glucoseamine, putty etc. Ca 2000 analyses are run annually in our laboratory.
