A simple method was created and implemented through the technology of ink-jet printing to study the effects of three chemical factors (chemical reagents) to the ninhydrin reaction. The effects of each single reagent and their interactions on the reaction were studied in one experiment. The three reagents all have effects on ninhydrin reaction, and the effects under the different combinations of reagents were presented on a chip. This work was completed efficiently with a smaller experimental workload compared with the traditional method.
