Biodistribution and Pharmacokinetic studies of drugs containing metal ions

Several drugs containing, metal ions are used in the treatment of severe medical conditions and illnesses. To determine drug dose, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion of the metal ions in animal and clinical samples, new analytical technologies and tools have been developed for preclinical and clinical evaluation. The technologies allow for an evaluation of intended and unintended accumulation of metal ions in specific organs and body fluids.

To detect even minor differences in metal levels for specific samples Eurofins BPT offers to detect down to ppb level, due to the extensive possibilities for sample pre-treatment in microwaves and other sample preparation techniques as well as the specially designed high pressure room to safeguard samples from contaminating air particles.

Metal Competence Center services, Europe

Eurofins BPT offers the complete range of metal testing services for preclinical and clinical samples including:

  • Method development and validation, according to EMA or ICH guideline.
  • Testing of whole blood, serum, plasma, urine, faces and tissues such as kidneys, heart, liver, spleen, bone marrow, etc.
  • Advice regarding analytical methods & approaches.
  • Extremely low level detection of specific metals down to ppb level.
  • Analytical Approaches

Eurofins BPT can help in the planning and execution of sample handling, selection of instrumentation and general instrument performance advice, optimized for specific testing needs. For example, detection levels are dependent on sample pre-treatment technique, sample digestion, choice of instrumentation, adapted to the available quantity of sample.

Eurofins BPT technologies include, standardized methods optimized for animal and human samples, special sample pre-treatment techniques, microwave digestion, ICP-AES and ICP-MS instrumentation.

All work is conducted according to GLP guidelines.
