The Free Amino Nitrogen (FAN) assay using ninhydrin is another commonly used food analysis assay that has just been adapted to the microplate format. The FAN assay measures the amount of usable protein or nitrogen that is available in food and beverage products for yeast to ferment. Dr. Gary Spedding and colleagues miniaturized the FAN assay on the SPECTROstar Nano, making it more reliable while using less material.
