Enhanced Diagnostic Tools
High Sensitivity Amino Acid Analysis
Pure proteins are usually supplied in solution for quantitation and the above conditions apply. An aliquot will be taken and dried down before gas phase hydrolysis.
Note: Analysis from PVDF is not quantitative, however, it can provide an estimate of the amount of protein present.
Quantitative Amino Acid Analysis
Dry samples such as food products, protein and synthetic peptides need to be supplied in sufficient amounts to weigh accurately. At least 1g of food product is needed and several milligrams of synthetic peptides or protein samples. These undergo a liquid hydrolysis for accurate quantitation.
Biological samples coming into APAF should be accompanied by documentation of potential pathogenicity or pathogen free status otherwise APAF will presume all samples from human and animal origin are potential pathogens and will be treated accordingly.
