ADME in Drug Discovery
Infographic Aug 15, 2019 | by Laura Elizabeth Lansdowne, Science Writer, Technology Networks
Pharmacokinetics is the term used to describe the movement of a drug into, through and out of the body. The kinetics of a drug can be split into four phases – absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion – also known as “ADME”.
ADME properties directly affect the activity of a drug, therefore, it is important to “optimize” the properties of drug candidate to ensure it is as effective as possible.

Both inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) are analytical techniques important for the analysis of trace elements in a host of mediums.

Often referred to as “mini-organs”, organoids are tiny self-organizing 3D assemblies of cells which show some physiological features of a specific organ. As an intermediate between traditional 2D in vitro cell cultures and animal models, organoids are a useful tool for several applications.READ MORE
