Extraction and quantification of biomolecules in food and plants
Description of the services offered
Biomolecules are extracted and purified. The final product is delivered, diluted and lyophilised.
Biochemical analysis (spectrophotometric, electrophoretic and chromatographic) of nutrients in food, mainly plants. Phenolic compounds, antioxidants, total sugars and proteins can be analysed, amongst others. The final results are delivered in a report with graphic representations and statistical analysis. All analyses include a preliminary experiment design to ensure the representativeness and amounts of substrates needed to do all the analyses.
Extraction and purification of biomolecules using biochemical methods adapted to the study matrix. Column-based DNA and RNA extraction and purification.
Needs requested and applications
Food biochemical analysis. Phytochemical extraction and quantification. Biomolecule extraction and quantification.
Sector or area of application
Food, agriculture and biomolecular research industry.
Adaptation of the analyses to the study matrix.
