HPLC with Various Detection Systems

  • Molecular weight
  • Starch chain length distribution
  • Oligosaccharide distributions
  • Preparative separations

HPAEC provides an indirect assessment of oligosaccharide size by comparison to known standards. This also allows for the determination of chain length distributions in mixtures of similar oligosaccharides, such as starch hydrolysates. In addition, HPSEC may be used for the estimation of the size range of large polysaccharides, such as intact pectin or fiber, and for comparison to degraded products of these important food components. In some cases these techniques may be used for preparative separation of products for further analysis.
