Amino Acid Analysis (AAA)

MassChrom® Amino Acid Analysis (AAA) is a flexible assay for the quantification of a full range of 48 amino acids in plasma/serum within 20 min or, 8 min for PKU and MSUD testing only. The assay can be employed for the determination of metabolic diseases.  

  • No derivatisation
  • Short run times
  • Excellent separation of isobaric analytes
  • Each analyte safeguarded by its own internal standard
  • Full test menu in less than 20 min or PKU/MSUD panel in 8-9 min
  • Reaction vials or 96 deep well plates
