Gold Standard Technique Celebrates Golden Anniversary

Jun 09 2008

The special edition Gold Standard Biochrom 30 Amino Acid Analyser has been introduced to celebrate 50 years of automated amino acid analysis. In 1946 amino acid analysis took months to provide results. By 1950 analysis times dropped to weeks. Then in 1958 Stanford Moore and
William Stein made a major breakthrough and automated the amino acid analysis technique for the first time to enable the analysis to be
completed in a single day. Now 50 years on, although the underlying principles of amino acid analysis remain the same, analysis times for full profiles now take less than two hours to perform with certain families of amino acids taking as little as 10 minutes. “Modern automated amino acid analysers are now compact bench top units with
‘load and go’ operation, optimised for convenience and performance. Although these days there are several methods used for the determination of amino acids there remains only one gold standard technique that provides accurate data suitable for diagnosis or exact
determinations. The Biochrom 30 is the Gold Standard System for Gold Standard applications, “ claimed Sally Bee, Biochrom’s Amino Acid
Analysis Marketing Manager.
As a leading manufacturer of amino acid analysers for over 30 years Biochrom’s product development over the decades has seen improved speed of data output, increased sensitivity and minimised operator times for its new generation of instruments. The gold standard technique is based on ion exchange liquid chromatography with ninhydrin detection and is used in a wide range of applications areas.
