Determination of biogenic amines with automated precolumn derivatization

Biogenic amines are found in certain foods and play a role as regulatory agents in the human metabolism1. In food and beverages they are formed by enzymes out of raw materials or are generated by microbiological decarboxylation of amino acids. Many of them possess a strong pharmacologic effect and some are important as precursors of hormones and components of coenzymes. The biogenic amine poisoning leads to toxicological risks and health hazards that trigger psychoactive, vasoactive, and hypertensive effects resulting from the consumption of high amounts of biogenic amines in foods2.
