years of operation

TetraQ is a contract-funded Central Research Platform of The University of Queensland providing pre-clinical and clinical support to industry, academia and non-profits.

Bioanalytical Services

TetraQ’s bioanalytical facility determines small molecule and protein concentrations in matrices including plasma, serum, urine and tissue homogenates. We can develop and validate methods to support pharmacokinetic (PK) sample analysis for both pre-clinical and clinical studies.

We also offer pharmacodynamic (PD) analysis of biomarkers based on commercial ELISA kits or Meso Scale Discovery  multiplex technology.
