Our services

Quantification of metabolites

Complete quantification of metabolites using isotope-labeled internal standards.

Profiling classes of metabolites

  • Coenzyme A activated substances isolated from tissues, cell and yeast cultures
  • Polyamines from serum / plasma / tissue (human / animal) samples
  • Phospholipids, triglycerides

Metabolic fingerprinting

Profiling small molecules in biological samples using chromatography coupled with high-resolution mass spectrometry (Orbitrap). Alterations in patterns of small molecules are examined using sophisticated statistical methods that have tailored for biomarker identification.

Profiling classes of metabolites - targeted / untargeted metabolomics

LC coupled to high-resolution mass spectrometry based on Orbitrap technology allows the identification of metabolites in fingerprints on the basis of their exact molecular mass and retention time. This technology enables the user to study small molecule profiles while simultaneously targeting specific substances and substance classes.

Application: hypothesis-driven biomarker discovery, characterization of pharmaceuticals from natural sources (tea, plant extracts), metabolic research.

Optimized methods for quenching cellular metabolism

Specific metabolites resulting from energy metabolism are, in turn, metabolized at a high conversion speed. In order to carry out investigations on these metabolites, the background enzymatic reactions must be stopped (quenched) quickly and exactly at the desired time point. The metabolite concentrations are then preserved in the sample. This can be achieved by optimizing the methods for quenching cellular metabolism.

  • Peak detection, peak integration, retention time correction, peak grouping
  • Metabolite identification
  • Development of univariate and multivariate statistical methods
  • Data visualization
  • Data filtering and correction

As a service to the pharmaceutical industry, we investigate the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of new drugs as well as the bioequivalence (BE) of new pharmaceutical formulations. We also carry out biomarker-based and metabolomic studies to pinpoint the causes of inflammatory diseases. We perform preclinical ex vivo and in vivo, as well as clinical in vivo, studies. During these studies, we use microdialysis and our patented Open Flow Microperfusion (OFM).

We focus on the targeted tissue

  • Dermatology: Transport routes and effects of drugs within the dermal layer after topical or systemic administration (e.g., topical glucocorticoids or systemic antibodies in the case of psoriasis) [Details]
  • Endocrinology: Transport routes and effects of drugs in adipose tissue (e.g., insulin) [Details]
  • Neurology: Transport across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), dose-response effects when the BBB is bypassed, monitoring of BBB function (e.g., highly lipophilic substances, psycho- and neuropharmaceuticals [Details]

Open-flow microperfusion

  • OFM is a method whereby tissue fluids are continuously extracted, which uses minimally invasive, membrane-free probes.
  • It allows direct access to the interstitial spaces and fluid.
  • Interstitial fluid can be continuously collected in vivo while several parameters (including biomarkers) are simultaneously analyzed, without any restrictions in terms of size (to the cellular level), lipophilicity of measured compounds, or protein binding effects.
  • OFM allows access to all biochemical information within the interstital space in vivo and, thus, opens new perspectives for preclinical and clinical drug testing.
