Metabolomics is defined as the identification and quantification of metabolic products in a biological system. As part of this Spotlight, we explore the recent advances in target and untargeted metabolomics and review the use of metabolomics in drug development and precision medicine.
In this Spotlight, we will be revisiting some of the key issues raised in a previous Spotlight: Biomarkers (and biosensors), as well as investigating advancements in the field and the development of techniques. We will hear from experts in the field about the key challenges they face, how they overcome them and how their research is helping to advance the development of human healthcare.
Welcome to this Bioanalysis Zone Spotlight, where we will explore the key developments and technologies in the ever-evolving field of small molecules.
Welcome to the Bioanalysis Zone Spotlight on Microsampling: the road ahead!
There has been continued interest in microsampling both in the literature and at scientific meetings in recent years, driven by factors including:
– Implications for 3Rs (replacement, reduction, refinement) in animal studies
– Maximizing information from animal pharmacology models in small animals
– Logistical benefits for clinical
