Investigators from Chung Yuan Christian University Have Reported New Data on Amino Acids (Determination of amino acids by microemulsion electrokinetic chromatography laser induced fluorescence method)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- New research on Amino Acids is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Chungli, Taiwan, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "In this study, detection of 20 FITC-derivatized amino acids using an MEEKC-LIF was demonstrated."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Chung Yuan Christian University, "In order to achieve good separation for hydrophobic amino acids, the MEEKC method was employed and detection limits were obtained in the range of 0.32-2.2 nM, which is comparable to previous reports on amino acid analyses. Furthermore, a significant reduction in the reaction time from 1h for conventional derivatization to 3 min for the microwave-assisted derivatization was observed and achieved, as opposed to the traditional pretreatment of real sample due to its complexity prior to the analysis of amino acid content."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Finally, this microwave-assisted derivatization MEEKC-LIF method successfully determined amino acids in beverage, food, and biological samples (rat brain) with good recovery."
