We are able to analyse different types of biological samples including rodent (cells, electrophysiology slices, microdialysats, tissues and plasma) and also human (tissues, saliva and plasma) samples
The two main endocannabinoids anandamide (arachidonoylethanolamide, AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) are presently quantified at the platform together with the endocannabinoids entourage compound oleoylethanolamide (OEA) and palmitoylethanolamide (PEA). Simultaneously, the exocannabinoids as delta-9-tétrahydrocannabinol or THC and its metabolites (11-hydroxy-delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and 11-nor-9-carboxy-delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) are also quantified
We are currently measuring 15 neurosteroids at the platform: pregnenolone (3α-hydroxy-5β-pregnen-ol-20-one), allopregnanolone (3α-hydroxy-5a-pregnan-20-one), epiallopregnanolone (3β-hydroxy-5α-pregnan-ol-20-one), tetrahydrodeoxycorticosterone (3α,21-dihydroxy-5α-pregnan-20-one; 3α,5α -THDOC), dehydroepiandrosterone (3β-hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one; DHEA), testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), progesterone, corticosterone, alpha-dehydroprogesterone, pregnanolone, tetrahydrodeoxycorticosterone, allopregnanolone, 17-hydroprogesterone and 17-hydropregnenolone.
Regarding neurotransmitters, we are able to quantify γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glycine, glutamate and its co-activator D-serine.
