Welcome

The High Performance Liquid Chromatography Bioanalytical Core (HPLC), a new member core of the Emory Integrated Core Facilties (EICF)is supported by the Department of Pharmacology, the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance, and the Emory University School of Medicine. The Core measures monoamine neurotransmitters, amino acids neurotransmitters and purines using HPLC methods to support research efforts at Emory. Please contact us to discuss your experimental needs.

Service Highlights

The HPLC bioanalytical core 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
