Method Reference:
In-house (LC-MS/MS)

Method Description:
Testing reports values for α-lactalbumin and β-lactoglobulin. Isotopically labelled peptide is added as an internal control, followed by an enzymatic digestion. Tryptic digestion of the proteins to peptides is achieved in five hours. Peptide samples are analyzed by LC-MS/MS using a triple-quad mass spectrometer. Chromatographic separation is performed in reverse phase on a C18 column using a gradient elution program.
