Amino Acids Analysis

Online Inquiry

Amino acids are biologically important organic compounds, consisting of amino (-NH2) and carboxyl (-COOH) functional groups, as well as side chains connected to each amino acid. They are not only the raw material for protein synthesis but also participate in the regulation of various physiological functions of cells, which is essential for maintaining life. Amino acids can be classified into aliphatic amino acids, aromatic amino acids, heterocyclic amino acids, acyclic amino acids, basic amino acids, sulfur-containing amino acids, hydroxyl amino acids, iodine-containing amino acids, etc., according to their different binding groups.

Creative Proteomics developed an amino acid analysis method based on UPLC-MS platform for absolute quantitative detection of 130+ amino acids and their derivatives.
