Based in newly refurbished facilities, Clinical Pharmacology use a variety of sample preparation techniques, such as solid-phase extraction and liquid-liquid extraction, in combination with LC-MS, LC-MS/MS and LC-UV methodologies.
Current equipment includes:
- a high resolution SCIEX TripleTOF® 5500 System LC-MS system
- 4 triple-quad AB SCIEX API 5000™ LC/MS/MS System
- 2 ion-trap LC-MS systems
- 3 LC-UV systems
- 1 liquid handler for automated sample preparation
- 2 dried blood spot punching systems
The laboratory has its own QA/QC sub-department and all assays are developed and conducted to international guidelines and full ISO accreditation standards. A main focus of the drug measurement research is the development of high-throughput field-adapted filter paper methodologies.
Alongside the on-going research programme across the MORU network, Clinical Pharmacology provides external academic researchers and commercial collaborators an affordable service in High Throughput Routine Drug Analysis.
Our main goal is to share the resources we have available with our AB SCIEX API 5000™ LC/MS/MS System to provide high quality research services which enable scientists to pursue important questions.
