Scope of services:
- non-targeted qualitative analyses by fingerprinting / footprinting in biological material,
- pharmacometabolomics,
- tracing metabolic pathways (metabolic profiling),
- analyses the decomposition products of xenobiotics, searching for new products of biotransformation of compounds.
