Analytics and Mass Spectrometry
This Core Unit carries out various measurements for projects running at the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry. We have particular expertise in mass spectrometry, therapeutic drug monitoring in humans and mice, pharmacokinetics, metabolomics, steroid measurements and cerebrospinal fluid analysis. Project-specific issues are tackled using appropriate methods, which may be employed in our clinical lab in the case of clinical projects. Analytical processes including those for mass spectrometry are developed specifically for the project. The methods of measurement are adapted to animal or cell culture material depending on the question.
