BIOMIC_AUTh is an inter-disciplinary team active on biomarker discovery (disease diagnosis/prognosis/therapeutic intervention), pre-clinical drug research and agro-food R&D. Central research themes include metabolomics, genetics, bio-equivalence, functional foods, food authenticity and traceability. BIOMIC_AUTh Laboratory team brings together 18 researchers with strong expertise in bioanalysis and application in life sciences.
Metabolomics or metabonomics, defined as the application of unbiased global, or holistic, analysis of biological samples (e.g. animal/human biofluids, tissue and cell extracts, in vitro incubation media etc., or plant/food extracts), are increasing exponentially as the potential of this approach to discover new biomarkers is becoming more widely appreciated.Read more
Foodomics constitute a new approach in food science and nutrition by providing information about the food metabolome (V. García-Cañas et al. Anal. Chem. 2012). As the knowledge of the food metabolome increases, new relationships can be discovered between analyte compositions and quality properties (A. Bordoni, F. Capozzi, Current Opinion Food Scie. 2015).Read more
The BIOMIC_AUTh group can provide expert GLP & Non-GLP analytical services using LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS technology. We have experience in development, validation and application of quantitative analysis of drugs, drug metabolites and endogenous metabolites in virtually any biological specimen.Read more
