Collagen laboratory analysis

As a manufacturer, you want to analyze the collagen present in your products.

Collagen in a nutshell

Collagen is a biopolymer, i.e. a naturally-occurring polymer composed of polypeptide chains that are repeating units of amino acids linked by peptide bonds. It is the main component of tissues such as skin, bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. There are several types of collagen in the body, each with a specific function in the tissues in which it is found. Collagen plays an important role in the structure and function of connective tissues, giving them strength and elasticity.

Why carry out a collagen analysis?

Determining the properties of collagen is essential for production processes and end-product control. A complete understanding of the properties of your biopolymers is also necessary to anticipate their evolution in their environment of use.

Indeed, the degree of polymerization (proportional to molar mass) of chitosan determines its mechanical and thermal properties.

In addition, crystallinity, cross-linking, glass transition and melting temperatures all play a part in determining a biopolymer’s properties.

The expertise of a laboratory skilled in collagen analysis is therefore required to determine all these properties.
