Analytical Chemistry

Define, improve and verify your innovation.

At ABPDU, we engage in continuous process improvement to enable the successful scaling of each unit operation. We use extensive analytics to:

  • Understand the interaction between various feedstocks and deconstruction methodologies
  • Identify fermentation inhibitors
  • Obtain detailed recovery data for techno-economic modeling

Precise Quantification

We use protocols and techniques widely recognized by industry, but also have the flexibility to adapt these protocols and develop methods customized to your project. We use validation characteristics to ensure the data provided is of the highest quality.

Analytical Chemistry Options

Biomass Composition

We perform quantitative analyses of moisture, lignin, ash, glucan, and xylan in various biomass feedstocks per standard protocols. Through HPLC, we also measure sugar and degradation product concentrations in biomass hydrolysates.

Material Physical Properties

We use rheology and energy density methodologies to understand the physio and chemical properties of starting materials to support operational planning and process design from scale up to commercialization.

Protein Characterization

We carry out qualitative and quantitative analyses of proteins and enzymes. Our analysis capabilities include SDS-PAGE, protein content, and microplate activity assays.
