Soluble compounds analysis in blood samples
Clinical Research & Medical Devices
The analysis of whole blood, plasma, serum and urine is a most insightful method in clinical research. Since the sensitivity of analytical instrumentations systems has improved steadily in recent years, research results and reliability have increased as well.
In clinical applications, analytical instruments unfold a multitude of benefits:
- They support quality of life. Analytical instruments help to elucidate efficiency and toxicity of pharmaceuticals. Drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics study by using them is inevitable in drug research and development.
- They help to save lives, particularly when it comes to time-critical situations, e.g. through acute intoxication, medical or drug abuse.
- They analyze over- and undersupply of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
- They are applied in genomics, proteomics and metabolomics.
- They uncover fraud in sports, particularly in animal or human doping. At the same time, analytical systems support health protection of animals and humans, even in the long-term.
Vaporable compounds analysis in cell samples
Clinical research encompasses a number of application areas, from therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) and endocrinology to clinical toxicology, with the analysis of whole blood, plasma, serum and urine being a cornerstone application. This research requires innovative solutions and high-sensitivity analytical instruments to ensure high-quality, reliable results you can trust.
