Pharmacokinetic Testing

Accredited Bioanalytical Expertise

Comprehensive suite of new pre-clinical and clinical testing capabilities: pharmacokinetic (PK), pharmacodynamic (PD), and companion diagnostic (CDx) services.

Proteomics International applies its proven expertise and experience in targeted mass spectrometry to the field of PK testing. Mass spectrometry is ideal for the accurate and precise quantitation of target drugs and their break-down products in biological matrices, the basis of pharmacokinetic testing.

Our workflows are capable of handling varying sample types including plasma, whole blood and urine.

Proteomics International’s high-throughput analytical capabilities, using state of the art LC-MS spectrometers and liquid handling robots, ensures that it is able to analyse a range of small molecule, large molecule, and peptide drugs in an automated manner, yielding efficient and accurate analysis.



      • Pre-clinical and clinical analytical services.
      • Method development of quantitative assays for drugs in biological matrices using industry standard LC-MS/MS systems.
      • Method development and validation is conducted in accordance with international recognised regulatory standards.
      • Sample testing and reporting utilises validated software.

Project specific quotations will be provided upon request.
