Bioanalytical services

At Ardena, we specialise in the analysis of endogenous and exogenous compounds in biological matrices. Our capabilities span both small and large molecules, and cover all phases of drug development from discovery to phase IV.

We have experience with all possible human and animal biological matrices, including (but not limited to) blood, plasma, serum, urine, faeces, tissues and milk, and specialise in techniques including chromatography and immunochemistry.


We possess the most advanced analysis techniques for chromatographic assays, with particular expertise in LC-MS/MS.

In addition to HPLC-UV/PDA/Fluorescence, we have thirteen LC-MS/MS systems, including:

  • API6500+
  • API5500 (including Qtrap and SelexION)
  • API4000 (including Qtrap)
  • API3200


We have a long track record of performing immunoassays for PK measurements, biomarkers and immunogenicity.

Our core immunochemistry techniques include:

  • Enzyme Linked Immuno Assay (ELISA)
  • Time Resolved Fluorescent Immuno Assay (TRFIA)
  • Alphalisa
  • Mesoscale (MSD)
