MetAmino® kit

MetAmino® kits offer an easy sample preparation method for your LC-MS or GC-MS analysis.

The MetAmino® kit is designed for the comprehensive analysis of amino acids, biogenic amines and other metabolic analysis by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) using various mass spectrometric detectors (ion trap, triple quadrupole, high resolution MS).

The method has been validated for the determination of 36 amino acids and related compounds with primary or secondary amino groups in human serum and urine, matrices of plant origin or in other matrices. The sample preparation procedure is simple, inexpensive, and does not require expensive laboratory equipment.

MetAmino® kits include derivatization reagences and all clean-up accessories to prepare your sample for injection. They eliminate time-consuming sample preparation procedures. The new clean-up procedure uses a special material as the end step including filtration (no need to use a syringe filter prior injection). The other advantage is that the derivatization procedure enables you to extend the analyte list.
