Are you interested in analyzing neurotransmitters in brain microdialysate or brain tissue?

Perhaps you have a number of samples you’d like to run, but don’t want to fully commit to a new machine. Today, we’re happy to announce a new loaner program for an HTEC system fully ready to use.

The Eicom HTEC is a fully integrated HPLC-ECD for the detection of neurotransmitters from brain microdialysis and/or tissue samples. It is a fast and highly sensitive system that can be placed on a lab benchtop. Sample analysis can range from 5 to 30 minutes per sample, depending on the application. Sample runs can include quantitative analysis neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, acetylcholine, amino acids like glutamate and GABA. The HTEC is simple and straightforward to use. You don’t have to be an expert on HPLC to run analysis, anyone can be an expert!

Let’s take a look inside:

  •  Dual-piston pump with a unique algorithm to reduce noise without any pulse damper.
  • Degasser to remove small air bubbles for better pump performance
  • Temperature control for consistent results
  • Separation column specific for the application
  • Electrochemical detector cell with a 3 electrode DC potentiostat and an amperometric electrode.

The electrically active analyte is detected as it flows over the surface of a smooth electrode with an applied voltage.

How the loaner program works:

Contact us to discuss the scope of your research or questions you may be asking. Our support specialists will be happy to discuss what kind of analytes you’re interested in as well as the brain region. We’ll get you set up with an application specifically designed for your experiments. We’ll come to your lab and do the installation and training on-site over a 2 day period. From there, you can start running samples. Should you have any questions or need assistance, our support specialists will be available to help along with a self-help support site. At Amuza, it’s important that our instruments work just as well for you as they do in our facility.

We’ll provide shipping materials once your loan of the equipment is completed.
