With the aim of focusing on specific client requirements Auriga Research Bangalore has added amino acid analysis to its services. Auriga’s amino acid analysis facility will serve the Food and Pharmaceutical Industry in the region. Auriga already offers a comprehensive portfolio of analytical methods and the addition of amino acid analysis will add strength to the other services provided by the testing laboratory. Since the amino acid analysis facility is already functional, clients can begin testing their samples and ensure consumers are provided a better product.
Amino acid analysis is a fundamental biochemical technique used for the determination of amino acid composition. Proteins and peptides are macromolecules consisting of covalently bonded amino acid residues organised as a linear polymer. The sequence of the amino acids in a protein determines the properties of the molecule. Proteins are large molecules that commonly exist as folded structures with a specific conformation while the peptides are smaller and may consist of only a few amino acids. This analysis helps us to quantify proteins and peptides based on their amino acid composition and also to evaluate fragmentation strategies for peptide mapping.
Amino acid analysis has wide applications in the Food Industry. Quantitation of amino acids released during hydrolysis is an important measure of a food product’s nutritional value. A free amino acid profile can give good insight into the origin of a food product and indirectly can also give information on possible adulteration. Further free amino acids are also metabolic indicators that can be used to monitor and optimize the processes in the food processing domain.
Amino acid analysis is a vital tool at all stages of Drug Discovery and the manufacturing process where in it is used to ensure consistency between drug batches. It is an important part of the ICH Q6B guidelines in support of new marketing applications.
Auriga Research Bangalore has recently established the capability of analysing amino acids in various sample matrices such as protein/peptide hydrolysates, feeds, foods and pharmaceutical preparations. The equipment here makes use of a traditional HPLC attached to a fluorescence/UV-Vis detector with a pre-column derivatization step. This provides enhanced resolution with precise qualitative and quantitative results.
Auriga Research Laboratory is committed to providing the latest in the field of analysis so clients can be provided with the best analytical solutions. The new range of amino acid analytical method is well suited for the food and pharmaceutical industry so food manufacturers, biological researchers and developers of pharmaceutical formulations and food supplement manufacturers can use the amino acid analysis for quick identification of nutrition in foods, pharmaceuticals and supplements. The decision to add this facility will enhance the ability of Auriga Research Bangalore to respond to clients requirements in the region.
