Biochemistry lab #1

My first biochem lab of the semester was quite interesting and made up of several tests for carbohydrates and lipids as well as for proteins and amino acids. The tests for carbohydrates and lipids included the Molisch test, Benedict’s test, Seliwanoff’s test, Modified Barfoed’s test, Bial’s test, Iodine test, Acid Hydrolysis of Sucrose, Sudan III test and an Emulsion test.The following are tesst for protein and amino acids: the Biuret reaction, protein precipitation and the Ninhydrin reaction. can you guess what each are for?
