Process from ordering to final analysis
After ordering and obtaining the samples, they are processed immediately. For this, the amino acids are derivatized with the self-produced pure fluorescent compound, 6-aminoquinolyl-N-hydroxy-succinimidylcarbamate (AQC). Subsequently, prepared samples are loaded for individual separation on an ultra-pressure reversed-phase chromatography (UPLC). The desired amino acids are separated and detected via a fluorescence detector. The analysis is completed within 6 minutes. The chemical reaction of the derivatization can be monitored in the "chemical process". The quality and reliability of detected amino acids is checked by means of individual standards with a defined concentration and the final concentration of each amino acid is determined.
