Determination of glucosamine in food supplements by HILIC-ESI-MS

20 October 2017 | By , , ,

Glucosamine is sold as a food supplement worldwide, but its production is poorly regulated. A direct and reliable method for the quality control of glucosamine in commercial products is of great importance. This article describes a simple, fast and validated ultra-performance liquid chromatography-quadrupole time of flight (UPLC-QToF) for the determination…

Microfluidic chips: Lab-on-a-chip cell culture for metabolomics

3 July 2015 | By Laura A. Filla and James L. Edwards, Saint Louis University

Microfluidic devices (MFDs) have recently become popular as cell culture platforms for metabolomics due to reduced reagent requirements and the feasibility of flow-based studies. Such devices have the potential to transform pharmaceutical research by providing an online approach to high-throughput screening which can be coupled with a variety of analysis…

Evolution of drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics in drug discovery and development

10 July 2012 | By Dr. Dermot McGinnity, Innovative Medicines, AstraZeneca R&D

Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics (DMPK) is a scientific discipline once primarily associated with safety evaluation in drug development that has, in the last two decades, become a core discipline within drug discovery, development and even post-marketing. Approximately 20 years ago, sub-optimal DMPK properties were recognised as a contributor to the…

Evaluating drug safety

7 March 2005 | By Donald G. Robertson, Metabonomics Evaluation Group, Departments of Worldwide Safety Sciences and Michael D. Reily, Discovery Technologies, Pfizer Global Research and Development

Metabonomics has been defined as the “the quantitative measurement of the time-related multi-parametric metabolic response of living systems to pathophysiological stimuli or genetic modification”1. In simple terms it is a powerful tool for assessing the metabolic component of systemic response.
