Sykam S433 Amino Acid Analyzer physiological standards and physiological fluid analysis

Shown below, sample chromatograms of the routine physiological analysis program with Arginine eluting at 103 minutes and the physiological extended program separating additional amino acids with Arginine eluting at 157 minutes. Figure 8 and 9 illustrate short programs for some specific amino acids and Glutathione. The graphs are 700×400 dots. Zooming in could reveal more detail on your monitor.
