Chromatography is a technique that is widely used and important for analysis, separation and purification of components from a complex mixtures. There are few types of chromatography including thin layer chromatography (TLC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LCMS), gas chromatography (GC), gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GCMS) and supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). In food science and technology research, chromatography is widely used to separate and concentrate protein, carbohydrate, amino acid, vitamin, secondary metabolic composition in plants and for quality and safety of food purpose.
The Chromatography Laboratory at Faculty of Food Science and Technology is developed with an objective to become a research centre which use chromatography technique as a main medium of analysis. With fully equipped instruments and experience researchers and supporting staffs, Chromatography Laboratory aims to be the centre of excellence in research, development and services which in line with Faculty and University objective.
Chromatography Lab has received accreditation under the Skim Akreditasi Makmal Malaysia (SAMM) - MS ISO / IEC 17025: 2005 on 22 November 2013 (SAMM No. 620). The type of tests that are accredited include the analysis content of crude protein and amino acids for meat and fish samples and analysis of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) for samples of edible oil.
We provide analysis service using liquid chromatography or gas chromatography instruments based on specific charges as stated below:
Analysis Charge (RM)
GC - FAME only **
* Charge for two injections for each sample.
** Charge for two injections for each sample including sample preparation.
