Customized solutions

Matrix-specific Biomarker panel:

The lifespin Profiler provides multiparameter quantification for all types of biological samples. We currently collect metabolic data from blood, urine, saliva and liquor (CSF). Further sample requirements are available on request.

Extended Biomarker panel:

An extension of the metabolic profiles is possible and can be tailored individually. Customized extensions benefit from our lifespin database with currently more than 1000 different metabolites (list available on request).

Pharmacogenetics and Therapeutic Drug Monitoring:

Whether you require help with a more targeted analysis and research into pharmaceutical drug development, clinical trial accompaniment or Therapeutic Drug Monitoring – we support your exciting projects with our expertise and creativity.
