Kairos Amino Acid Analysis Kit Simplifies and Automates LC/MS-MS Quantification of Amino Acids in Human Plasma and Urine

Waters Corporation has introduced a new amino acid analysis kit that reduces the time required to quantify amino acids, a critical application for research scientists investigating the physiological underpinnings of disease. The new Kairos™ Amino Acid Analysis Kit consisting of reagents, standards, an analytical column and associated methodology is capable of cutting analytical run times that can range up to two hours to run times of 10 minutes or less when used as directed with supported Waters™ UPLC systems, mass spectrometers and Waters Targeted Omics Method Library.

“We know that amino acids are fundamental to the understanding of numerous diseases,” said Dr. Erin Chambers, V.P., Chemistry Technology, Waters Corporation. “After looking at how long it takes to get results on a limited set of amino acids today, and at the accuracy and precision of those results, we decided we could do better. With the Kairos kit, researchers can obtain accurate physiological amino acid profiles faster, make better decisions and bring their research projects to completion more quickly.”

The all-in-one Kairos Kit comes with everything needed to consistently quantify 40 or more amino acids in 10 minutes or less when used with compatible Waters UPLC systems and mass spectrometers and the Waters Targeted Omics Method Library. For the needs of high-throughput laboratories, Waters is introducing a Kairos kit with consumables for 500+ individual analyses. Waters anticipates launching a second version of the kit for processing 100+ samples at the end of March.

Waters’ scientists have created two applications notes highlighting the capabilities of the Kairos kit. These, and other information, can be accessed online.
