Read the Bioanalysis Zone team’s top five take away messages from the 12th EBF Open Symposium, from automation to patient-centric sampling in this conference report.
Register for our exclusive Coffee Chat focusing on patient-centric sampling. This informal discussion centers on this new type of workflow that benefits the patient, enabling the collection of previously difficult data.
In this special report from Bioanalysis , the authors report on the importance of physiologically relevant quantitative bioanalytical assays. They share experiences from project support (internal and at CROs) that suggests the need to be ever vigilant translating the needs of bioanalysis with those of project teams.
A simple, effective approach for rapid development of high-throughput and reliable LC–MS/MS bioanalytical assays
In this article, the authors describe a simple, effective approach to achieve accelerated method development of high-throughput and reliable LC–MS/MS assays for regulated bioanalysis.
This review investigates the use of VOCs in disease diagnosis, the analytical techniques employed and the problems associated with sample handling and standardization. It then suggests the barriers to future development.
