Clinical Pharmacology
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Division of Clinical Pharmacology

​​​​​Analytical Pharmacology Laboratory​

The Analytical Pharmacology Laboratory quantifies drug concentrations in blood, urine or other biological matrices using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), size exclusion chromatography and liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS).

The focus of bioanalysis for academic research and for industry is to provide a quantitative measure of drugs and their metabolites for the purpose of pharmacokinetic, bioequivalence, metabolism and exposure-response (pharmacokinetic / pharmacodynamics) studies, as well as detection and quantitation of biomarkers for pre-clinical and clinical research. 

Small and larger molecules can be analyzed using advanced analytical techniques and methods. 

Our laboratories are experienced in method development, validation and small molecule bioanalysis using a broad array of analytical techniques and state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation.
