Serum (YK-421)

 

Serum

The problems in the anaysis using IC YK-421 is
that the analysis of very small amount of NH4+ in a sample which contains large amount of Na+ is difficult. Addition of 2.5mM 18-Crown 6-ether in 5mM Tartaric acid + 1mM Dipicolinic acid + 1.5g/L Boric acid eluent can solve the problem. Addition of crown 6-ether can adjust the elution volume of the cations. Especially, the elution volume of K+ is largely affected by the additon and elute after Mg2+.
