Clinical Research

Thermo Fisher Scientific’s dedicated clinical research applications team has recently developed key quantitative analysis workflows using Orbitrap™ technology on the Thermo Scientific Exactive, Exactive Plus and Q Exactive mass spectrometers. These solutions demonstrate the analytical specificity, sensitivity and dynamic range for quantitative analysis in body fluids such as plasma, serum, whole blood, urine, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and oral fluid.
The solutions developed cover the fields of endocrine research, drug monitoring research, and peptide and protein quantitation and include workflows for the quantitative analysis of endogenous steroids, vitamin D metabolites, estrogens and cholesterol in endocrine research, and immunosuppressant, anticancer, antifungal, protein kinase inhibitors and amino acids in drug monitoring research.
