HPLC Bioanalytical Core

The HPLC bioanalytical core (http://www.cores.emory.edu/hplc/) offers the ability to identify and quantify monoamine neurotransmitters, amino acid neurotransmitters, purine bases, and nucleotides from a variety of biological samples.  Services provided:

  • Monoamine neurotransmitter analyses using HPLC coupled to electrochemical detector. Analytes include dopamine (DA), dihydroxyindolphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), homovanillic acid (HVA), epinephrine (EPI), norepinephrine (NE), 3-methoxytramine (3-MT), 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid (5-HIAA), 4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl glycol (MHPG), L-DOPA, serotonin (5-HT)
  • Amino acid neurotransmitter analyses using pre-column OPA derivatization HPLC coupled to electrochemical detector. Analytes include glutamate, glutamine, alanine, glycine, arginine, taurine, GABA, and tyrosine
  • Purine analyses using HPLC coupled to photodiode array detector. Analytes include ATP, ADP, AMP, adenosine, adenine, GTP, GDP, GMP, guanosine, hypoxanthine, inosine, xanthine and uric acid
  • We also offer custom analyses
