Learn how to improve Bioanalytical clinical outcomes by performing MetID characterisation. Leading experts Heather Heading and Andrew Taylor discuss how the quick identification of metabolites in both Invivio and Invitro samples can help accelerate programs through first-in-human trials.

About this webinar

Profiling, characterising, and identifying metabolites are key steps in supporting drug discovery and development of novel compounds. Metabolite identification (MetID) studies help you to understand the presence of potential active or reactive metabolites and observe the unique metabolites in your compound to better understand your molecule’s biotransformation capabilities. SEKISUI XenoTech and Agilex Biolabs’ combination of in-depth scientific knowledge in drug metabolism and mass spectrometry, extensive pharmaceutical industry experiences, and advanced software, can quickly identify metabolites in both in vivo and in vitro samples and help accelerate sponsors’ drug development programs through FIH clinical trials.

Key discussions in this webinar will include:

  • The use of MetID for tox species selection.
  • How to improve bioanalytical clinical outcomes by performing MetID characterisation.
  • How metabolite characterisation helps troubleshoot problems earlier in the drug program.
  • Test system selection for in vitro MetID.
  • Integrating MetID with your bioanalytical program and how the two corelate.
  • Why metabolite characterization studies are not quantitative.
  • Regulatory expectations for MetID
