Abstract: Biogenic amines were extracted from cheese, chocolate, fish, wine and sauerkraut by precipitation with trichloroacetic acid before HPLC on a radial-compression cartridge (10 cm x 8 mm) packed with Nucleosil C18 and equipped with a pre-column of Corasil C18. The mobile phase was aqueous 47% dimethyl sulfoxide containing 1 g L-1 of Na dodecyl sulfate and 2.8 M in Na acetate buffer (pH 5); ninhydrin (8 g l-1) and hydrindantin (0.6 g l-1) were dissolved in the mobile phase to effect post-column derivatization of the amines without need for an extra reagent pump. Detection was by using a PTFE knitted-tube reactor at 145°C and measuring the absorbance at 546 nm. Recovery of amines from cheese was 85 to 105%. The detection limit was 2 mg kg-1 in cheese and the response was rectilinear for 0.1 to 4 µg of amine injected. Detection limits for amines in sauerkraut and wine were 0.8 and 0.3 mg kg-1, respectively.
