The fourth in our monthly column series highlighting the ‘hot topics’ throughout November.
Mass spectrometry based metabolomics: a novel analytical technique for detecting metabolic syndrome?
This editorial discusses the use of mass spectrometry metabolomics as a diagnositic tool for detecting metabolic syndrome. Learn more in this article from Bioanalysis.
Ion mobility spectrometry combined with high-resolution mass spectrometry: acquisition, analysis and application to drug metabolism studies
In discovery, the identification of the major routes of biotransformation allows medicinal chemists to design compounds with more desirable ADME properties. Dan and Jan discuss the use of ion mobility spectrometry combined with high-resolution mass spectrometry for these drug metabolism studies.
In this commentary, Melanie Anderson discusses the use of paper-based dried sampling technologies and how they can provide opportunities to collect biological samples in the dried state, which involves significantly smaller sample volumes than traditional sample collection approaches.
In this editorial, the author discusses paper-based assays as an emerging technology in bioanalysis, as well as point-of care diagnostics and treatment.
This article discusses membrane-based distillation ion chromatography as a new bioanalytical method. Find out more in this article from Bioanalysis.
In this installment of Robert MacNeill’s (Envigo) column, Robert discusses the instability of drugs within samples and how to balance their instability against absorptive loss.
Current thinking on quantification of protein therapeutic pharmacokinetics and protein biomarkers in clinical studies
In this commentary, Kate Peng discusses the current thinking on quantification of protein therapeutic pharmacokinetics and protein biomarkers in clinical studies.
In this commentary, the authors discuss the benefits and challenges of using ‘ready-to-use’ cells from a frozen bank of uniform, tested, aliquots.
In December 2015, the Reid Bioanalytical Forum entered a new era with a new committee…
