The Analytical Technology Research Department was established on December 2006 in Tsukuba Science City (Tsukuba Center Inc., Tsukuba, Japan). We specialize in development of analysis methods of pharmaceuticals (non-GLP) with advanced MS technology. We also have experts in drug metabolite profiling and test substance analyses in the early stage of drug development.
