It discusses the chemical structures and properties of low- and high-molecular drug substances- the different types of biological samples and fluids that are used- how to prepare the samples by extraction, and how to perform the appropriate analytical measurements by chromatographic and mass spectrometric methods.The book includes multiple examples to illustrate the theory and applications, with many practical aspects including calculations, thus helping the student to learn how to convert the data recorded by instruments into the real concentration of the drug substances within the biological sample.Bioanalysis of Pharmaceuticals: Is an introductory student textbook discussing the different principles and concepts clearly and comprehensively, with many relevant and educational examplesFocuses on substances that are administered as human drugs, including low-molecular drug substances, peptides, and proteinsPresents both the basic principles that are regularly taught in universities, along with the practical use of bioanalysis as carried out by researchers in the pharmaceutical industry and in hospital laboratoriesIs relevant to students and scientists who use analytical techniques for analysis of samples of biological interest. It will also be of relevance to scientists, technicians and researchers in industry working in the areas of pharmaceutical analyses, biopharmaceutical analyses, biological and life sciences.
