Characterization of Prebiotics Using High-Performance Anion Exchange Chromatography (HPAEC) at High pH Coupled with Pulsed Electrochemical Detection (PED)


High-performance anion exchange chromatography at high pH coupled with pulsed electrochemical detection (HPAEC-PED) is one of the most useful techniques for carbohydrate determination for routine monitoring or research applications. 

prebiotic testing, carbohydrate analysis

The compatibility of electrochemical detection with gradient elution allows mixtures of simple sugars and oligo- and polysaccharides to be separated with high resolution in a single run. This technique has great impact on the analysis of oligo- and polysaccharides, including prebiotics. Prebiotics are selectively fermented ingredients that allow specific changes, both in the composition and/or activity in the GI microflora that translates into host well-being and health benefits.

Detecting Toxic Elements in Food

Speciation analysis (IC and ICP-MS) helps determine if food contains elements in toxic forms, and if these can be transported into the body through digestion, negatively affecting human health.
