Neurochemistry is the branch of neuroscience that focuses on the chemicals generated by and which influence the nervous system: neurotransmitters, neuromodulators, neuropeptides, amino acids, and others. Amuza specializes in microdialysis sampling, HPLC-ECD analysis, and fiber photometry. Amuza’s neurotransmitter analysis products and services enable researchers to create highly accurate, time-resolved snapshots of multiple neurochemicals in virtually any region of the brain, continuing to advance the discoveries of neurochemistry.
Products and Services for Neurochemistry
Complete In Vivo Microdialysis System
Amuza can create your entire microdialysis system, to streamline and automate your project.
Amuza customers are provided expert-level support. With simply designed products, meticulous instruction, and customer support for the life of the instrument, we instill confidence in our customers that they can use our neurochemistry and neurochemical analysis products to their highest potential.
Neurochemical analysis can be done using a neurotransmitter detection method. HPLC-ECD has become invaluable for studies requiring careful monitoring of neurochemistry, such as dopamine in pain research and Glu/GABA in alcoholism and addiction studies.
HPLC-ECD, The Most Reliable Way to Measure Neurotransmitter Levels
HPLC-ECD reliably measures neurotransmitter levels in microdialysate, tissue, biological fluids, and other samples. Data from an HPLC-ECD is easy to interpret, even when you are measuring multiple analytes simultaneously. You get absolute values for concentration, as opposed to just relative changes from baseline. The technique is also exquisitely sensitive, with sub-femtomole limits of detection (LOD).
