Harnessing the power of biomarker and drug analysis for clinical research and drug development.


Pharmacokinetic analysis

  • Quantification of drug compound and metabolites
  • Structural elucidation of drug metabolite 

Biomarker quantification

  • Biomarker discovery- proteomics and metabolomics
  • Biomarker validation 

Mechanistic elucidation

  • Label-free proteomics
  • In vivo SILAC (Stable Isotope Labelling with Amino Acids in Cell Culture) analysis


BMDA has built a portfolio of 3 analytical platforms and assays in the last few years for a wide range of clinical and preclinical appliactions.

Established in 2011, the Biomarker and Drug Analysis Laboratory (BMDA) provides analytical services for quantitative and qualitative analyses of soluble biomarkers, drug compounds and metabolites with state-of-the-art LC-MS/MS instruments to the researchers at the University of Dundee and to external academics and industrial clients. The laboratory is Good Clinical Laboratory compliant since 2016.
