We run AAA along with all the other aspects of our core service. peptides, oligos 
and sequencing, DNA & protein.
Almost all of our AAA work is related to industrial samples, eg foodstuffs and the like.
There is little demand in relation to protein sequencing although it is useful
for peptide synthesis.
We charge £100 (UK pounds) for one sample.
