Analytical Method Development and Consultation

We provide advanced analytical solutions for real time problems encountered in food, environmental, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and clinical samples. We offer analytical method development, validation and sample analysis for specialty projects as per client requirements.   Our specialisation involves applications using high resolution mass spectrometers such as Orbitrap, and triple quadrupole mass spectrometers  coupled with chromatographic techniques such as   Liquid Chromatography (LC),  Gas Chromatography (GC) and Ion chromatography (IC). Project work includes method development for new analytes and matrices; characterisation of unknown compounds and degradation pathways.
