  • identification of molecular and macromolecular substances in solutions, homogenates and solid body,
  • determining of chemical compound structure – chiefly organic, coordinative and bio particles,
  • qualitative and quantitative determining of organic compounds,
  • observation of dynamic particle transformations,
  • following the reaction progress,
  • variable temperature measurements
  • proteomics: determining of protein structure, determining of reacting between proteins and small particles,
  • metabolomic profiling,
  • pharmacology: identification and purity of active pharmaceutical substances.

The Laboratory performs the qualitative and quantitative analysis with determining the structure of chemical compounds in the scope of:

  • Proteomics: peptide analysis with the “bottom up” method and fragmentation type CID, HCD and ETD in order to identify proteins, post translation modification analysis (phosphorylation and glycosylation), peptide quantitative analysis (SRM/MRM), de novo proteins identification, “top down” method protein analysis
  • Metabolomics: profiling and identification of metabolites in clinical samples (serum, urine) and tissue material, analysis of low molecular weight substances
  • Lipidomics: separation and identification of lipids and derived compounds, profiling of cell and membrane lipids of plant, animal and human origin, quantitative analysis
  • Pharmacokinetics: DMPK analysis of medicines and their derivates in physiological liquids (serum, urine), test of medicines and cosmetics components, identification and structure determination of medicines and dietary supplements
  • MALDI Imaging: identification and analysis of protein and metabolites distribution in tissues
  • MALDI Biotyper: an innovative method of identification of microorganisms in biological materials (bacteria, yeasts, fungi)
