Analysis Package P71:
Our expertise with ion chromatography has allowed us to develop a protocol for determining the cabrohydrate composition of brown seaweeds.
This analysis package will give contents for the neutral sugars glucose, xylose, mannose, arabinose, and galactose, as well as the deoxy sugars fucose and rhamnose, the sugar alcohol mannitol, and the uronic acids mannuronic acid, guluronic acid, glucuronic acid, and galacturonic acid.
This analysis package is tailored towards the analysis of brown seaweed. If you would like us to analyse the carbohydrate composition of red or green seaweed please get in touch.

Sample Weight RequirementsUnder nornal conditions there is a minimum requirement of 2g of sample for this analysis package with a recommended weight of 10+g of sample.
However, it may be possible for us to undertake the anaysis with lower quantities than the minimum specified above. Please email us at email@example.com to find out.
Equipment Used for Seaweed Carbohydrates
|Ion Chromatography A Dionex ICS-3000 system that is equipmed with electrochemical, conductivity, and ultraviolet-visible detectors.|
|Autoclave An autoclave is used in the protocols for the determination of the lignin and structural sugars (cellulosic and hemicellulosic) contents of samples.|
