Performs sensitive, reproducible analyses of target compounds in complex matrices, reaching femtogram sensitivity. The main measurements that are done with this equipment or are currently being implemented include determination of Unsaturated Triglycerides Hydrolized Fatty Acids, Triglycerides, Mycotoxins in Various Cattle Forages and Food Matrices, Hydroxymethylfurfural in Foods, Melamine and Cyanuric Acid in Food Matrices, Tocopherols, Vitamin D2 from D3 and Other Fat-Soluble Vitamins, β-Carotene isomers, Retinal (Vitamin A) Isomers, water soluble Vitamins, sweeteners in food, Antioxidants in Food Matrices, Synthetic Colors in Food Matrices, artificial sweeteners and preservatives in drinks, Natural Food, Colorants, Acidulants in Wine, Flavonoids, Anthocyanin, Alcohols, Carbohydrates and Organic acids, Stilbene and Flavonoids in red wine samples, Amino acids, Carbonic acids, and Mono and Disaccharides.
The Agilent 1200 high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system is used to separate, detect, and analyze components of a sample. Types of analysis that can be done: detection, quantification and confirmation of toxic substances in vegetables, fruits, meat, and other types of food samples.
This system is designed to read the electrophoretic migration of proteins in agarose gel type environment, providing for each fraction both percentage values and absolute values.
