Red Glead Discovery supports drug discovery projects with lab services aimed at analyzing compound characteristics, which leads to a better understanding of their properties and thereby their suitability for further development.


Supported services:

  • Screen solubility (from DMSO solutions)
  • Customized solubility from solid material
  • Lipophilicity (logD, logP)
  • Stability studies (chemical stability, temperature, light)
  • Plasma protein binding through rapid equilibrium dialysis (several species)
  • In vitro metabolism in microsomes (rodent, canine, human species)
  • Plasma stability
  • Impurity proofing and ID


Red Glead Discovery supports drug discovery projects with in-house bioanalytical services conducted on biological samples from in vitro or in vivo studies. We have vast experience in bioanalysis of small molecules and peptides through LC-MS/MS.

  • Study design of pharmacokinetic experiments
  • Study of suitable pre-formulations for i.v. and p.o. in pre-clinical species *
  • Quantitative Bioanalysis by LC-MS/MS
  • Calculation of pharmacokinetic parameters

* We can also help you perform high-quality investigations of purity and determine concentration (e.g. dose control) using HPLC with various detection methods. We have in-house capabilities to supplement such investigations with NMR studies.



Our expertise in combination with suitable NMR experiments on our spectrometers enable customized and advanced NMR study packages and delivery of high quality NMR reports.

NMR studies of small molecules, peptides, proteins & polymers often involve:

  • Quantification & purity analyses – QNMR is useful for determining potency in pharmaceutical and environmental samples
  • Elucidation and identification of chemical structures of compounds, peptides, metabolites and impurities
  • 3D conformation and characterization of conformational dynamics
  • 1H and 3H NMR on radioactive samples
  • Fragment screening & studies of ligand-protein interactions

A quality system was implemented in 2016 for quantitative and qualitative NMR in order to further support our development phase clients.
