Vitamin D Assay
A highly sensitive, accurate and precise assay to concurrently measure 25-OH Vitamin D3 and 25-OH Vitamin D2 concentrations in human clinical samples is available to provide an accurate evaluation of individual Vitamin D status. Our bioanalytical method uses the highly sensitive Applied Biosystems 4000 Q Trap and Agilent LC-MS/MS instruments.
vivoPharm aim to ensure the highest quality results by performing all tests in compliance to vivoPharm GLP Quality standards in an efficient and timely manner to meet all your research needs.
In vitro CYP450 Inhibition assay
The cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYP) are a haemethiolate enzyme superfamily responsible for the metabolic clearance of a wide variety of drugs. Inhibition of CYP450 enzyme activity by a drug can result in drug-drug interactions with co-administered drugs which are metabolized by the same CYP450 enzyme which consequently may significantly increase the exposure of the interacting drug.
This method measures the activities of six major human CYP enzymes (CYP1A2, CYP2B6, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6 AND CYP344/5) using selective substrates incubated within human liver microsomes. The analytical method was validated under GLP guidelines. IC50 values are in agreement with reported literature.
