How Our Team Can Help

Pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) studies are critical in the research and development of novel therapeutic drugs. PK and PD assays allow an insight into the safety and effectiveness of the drug as well as help guide the appropriate dosage for preclinical and clinical studies.

Sword scientists will work with your scientists to develop and validate PK and PD assays exhibiting:

  • Multi-matrix analysis (Urine, Stool, CSF, Saliva, and Tissue homogenate)
  • Calibration curve and range
  • Accuracy and precision
  • Minimum required dilution (MRD)
  • Selectivity and specificity
  • Dilutional linearity
  • Short- and long-term stability
  • Freeze-thaw stability
