Skills of the qMSF Team
State of the art in LC-MS/MS analysis at qMSF:
- Absolute Quantification of endogeneous or synthetic-peptides at in vivo levels (e.g. 10 to 100 pM) in plasma or other matrices. A generic approach for these non-proteomic peptide analyses has been set-up. This project has been developped through collaborations with international LC-MS Corporation and Pharma Companies. Ultrasensitive detection of large peptides extracted from plasma is an outstanding skills at qMSF. See LC-MS chromatograms of plasma extracted peptides here.
Usual LC-MS/MS analysis at qMSF:
- Quantitative methods for drugs, peptides, endogenous compounds in plasma or other matrices.
- Identification of biotransformation products of drugs and peptides.
- Kinetic studies of the fate of drugs or peptides in in vitro incubations or patients plasma.
- Analyses following FDA guidelines.
