With over 25 years of experience and operating out of three GLP compliant laboratories, SGS’s Life Science Services provides pharmacokinetic analysis and bioanalytical services with a dedicated team of specialists.

Lady with spread out arms

Pharma and biotech companies of all sizes have chosen us as the preferred bioanalytical partner. SGS has the expertise to both develop assays de novo (including immunoassays) and to support large scale routine sample analyses, from pre-clinical to clinical studies.

In order to support the bioanalysis of various classes of compounds (including peptides), SGS offers a large range of techniques and methods providing rapid high volume bioanalysis. Our method development processes focus on high-throughput technological capabilities (e.g. TurboFlow extraction, multiprobe robots).

SGS offers more than 700 validated bioanalysis methods that are ready for use with a very short lead-time. Validation criteria follow guidelines from the FDA (May 2001) and the Crystal City Conference (May 2006). All validations are tailored to specific program requirements.

Dried Blood Spot Analysis

Dry Blood Spot (DBS) technology has several advantages for toxicokinetic (TK) and pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis, including: reduced blood sampling collection, absence of post-collection processing, low biohazard risk, fewer required facilities for sample shipment and storage. Furthermore, sample analysis can also be simplified.
