New App note about using Electrochemical Detection
Recently, new applications have been developed based on Electrochemical Detection (ECD) in highperformance liquid chromatography (HPLC) such as: 1. Fluorodeoxyglucose analysis for the clinical/ diagnostic market 2. Lactose measurement in lactose-free products for the food/dairy industry.
1.Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) tracer for PET scan imaging In PET imaging, the radio-labelled tracer 2-[18F]f luoro-2-deoxy-Dglucose ([18F]FDG) can be used for the assessment of glucose metabolism in the heart, lungs, and the brain as well as for imaging tumors in oncology Read more..
2. Lactose content in lactosefree labelled products (lactose intolerance) Lactose is a disaccharide that occurs naturally in the milk of mammals and is generally found to be around 5% (w/w). Other dairy products (like yoghurt and cream), and processed foods like sausages and cookies often contain lactose in detectable amounts. Read more..
