The analytical work of ABF is mostly performed with liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The lab is equipped with the latest and most current instrumentation including:

  • LC-MS/MS systems:

2x API4000, 1x API5000, 1x Waters Xevo TQ-S, 2x API6500 (QTRAP)

  • GC-MS systems:

1x Thermo ISQ, 1x Agilent AT-MSD 5975, 1x Shimadzu GCMS-TQ8050

  • GC-TOF-MS (Markes)

Other techniques applied for bioanalytical analyses at ABF include HPLC-UV/FLD, ELISA, Photometry (conventional, microtiter plate-based).

Certification and quality control

ABF maintains an accreditation according to ISO17025 since 2004 (Certificate and Appendix).

ABF has established GLP procedures. If requested, analytical services can be provided with performance according to GLP conditions with special reference to 21 CFR Part 11 FDA regulations. Quality is checked by internal and external audits on a regular basis.
