Amino Acids, Fatty Acids, and Hydrocarbons Analyses

Compound-specific isotopic and compositional analysis of amino acids (as N-acetyl isopropyl esters), fatty acids (as fatty acid methyl esters or FAMEs), and hydrocarbons are available including:

  • Compound-specific d13C analysis (Agilent 6890N Gas Chromatograph (GC-IRMS) of:
    • Amino Acids 
    • FAMES 
    • Hydrocarbons (> C12)
  • Compositional analyses (Agilent 6890A Gas Chromatograph and an Agilent Quadropole Mass Spectrometer) of:
    • FAMES
    • Hydrocarbons
  • A GC fraction collector to isolate selected compounds is also available

Any sample preparation (e.g. extraction and derivatization) is the client’s responsibility. Please contact Geert for any questions on sample preparation and procedures.
