Life Sciences Amino Acid Analysis
Amino Acid Analysis is a vital tool at all stages of drug discovery and throughout the manufacturing process, where it is used to ensure consistency between drug batches. It is also a key part of the ICH Q6B guidelines in support of new marketing applications. As such, it is important that when you outsource analysis you know you are placing work into a safe and experienced pair of hands.
Amino Acid Analysis can be used for:
- Protein concentration calculations and characterisation
- Determination of extinction coefficient
- Total amino acids, including cysteine, tryptophan, and hydroxyproline
- Free amino acids, including asparagine and glutamine
- Carry out an optical density measurement and analyse peptide or protein content and molar ratio using reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC)
- Couple this process with UV spectrophotometry to determine the extinction coefficient
