      Food Control. 22, 1154-1157 (2011). TLC of histamine in fish and fishery products on cellulose with ammonia - ethanol 1:3. Detection by spraying with Pauly's reagent (equal mixture of 20 mM sulfanilic acid in a 1 M HCl solution and 200 mM sodium nitrite solution, followed by adding 10 % anhydrous sodium carbonate in a 5 % ethanol solution). Color intensity was recorded using a digital camera, followed by imaging processing. Linearity was between 30 and 1000 ng/zone for histamine. Intermediate precision was below 5 % (n=3). The LOD was 20 ppm (2 mg/100 g). Recovery rate was between 93 and 98 %.

      Thin-Layer Chromatographic separation of cadaverine and ornithine, and spectrophotometric quantification
      H.A. KHAN (Department of Biochemistry, College of Science, Bld 5, King Saud University, P. O. Box 2455, Riyadh 11451, Saudi Arabia; khan_haseeb@yahoo. com)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 20, 231-233 (2007). TLC of cadaverine and ornithine on calcium sulfate (and silica gel) with methanol. Detection by spraying with 0.2 % ethanolic solution of ninhydrin and then heating the plates at 110 °C for 15 min. Quantitation by scraping the spot from the plate and measuring the absorbance at 550 nm. The lower limit of detection was found to be 0.75 µg/zone of ornithine.
