New Biochrom amino acid analysers offer rapid protocols

13 September 2010

Biochrom has launched the Biochrom 30+ Series of amino acid analysers – the gold standard in dedicated amino acid analysis

Based on ion exchange chromatography with post-column derivatization of samples using ninhydrin, these instruments accurately identify and quantify free amino acids, as well as the amino acid composition of proteins and peptides. The application areas are widely used in hospitals, industry, and veterinary, research and pharmaceutical laboratories.

Specific applications include:
 Detection and monitoring of metabolic disease and inborn errors of metabolism, such as PKU, in urine, plasma and CSF.
 Protein and peptide analysis for pharmaceutical applications.
 Nutrition and compositional analysis in food, drink and animal feed.

The new Biochrom 30+ Series offer rapid protocols that increase sample throughput by cutting analysis time compared with standard protocols. The instrument is PC-operated, with the user-friendly software controlling all functions, from the autosampler to the analysis and export of data. Advanced fluidics and robust hardware mean easy maintenance for users, backed by the reassurance of Biochrom’s dedicated service and support team.

A unique feature of all Biochrom amino acid analyzers is the column cleaning and repacking service, giving columns an almost indefinite life and cutting the cost of ownership.

With a worldwide reputation for excellence based on a forty-year history of manufacturing scientific instruments, Biochrom has made amino acid analysers for 40 years and is a global force in amino acid analysis.
