Due to the great flexibility, LC-MS/MS is very suitable for research purposes in patient care. Quantitative analysis in very low detection levels (in pmol/L) is possible for the analysis of endogenous compounds. No matter what type of analysis, endogenous, exogenous compounds or biomarkers it is possible to work with small sample volumes.
In addition the LC-MS/MS technique is widely applicable in terms of diverse sample material. Serum, plasma, dry blood spot, breast milk, saliva or urine have all been used and well documented. Due to the rapidly evolving field of LC_MS/MS, today Arcadia is able to use this technique to perform targeted proteomics, lipodomics and detection of very small molecules. Because the platform is an open format it enables for custom assay development.
