BioAnalytical Chemistry

The research of the Division of BioAnalytical Chemistry (BAC) focuses on the development and application of novel, multidimensional analytics for the molecular understanding of biological and chemical processes and the elucidation of biopharmaceutical and drug characteristics.

In order to gain detailed insights in highly complex samples and heterogeneous (macro)molecular structures and networks, methodological innovation is key. We thereby focus on state-of-the-art mass spectrometry combined and/or integrated with molecular spectroscopy, advanced separation techniques, and bioactivity detection. Hyphenation, integration, miniaturization and automation, are important aspects to face demands on selectivity, sensitivity, specificity, speed and data handling. The BAC Division teamed up synergistically with the Analytical Chemistry group of the UvA within the Centre for Analytical Sciences Amsterdam (CASA), the recognized national focus point for analytical chemistry. CASA encompasses strong research collaborations (incl. public-private partnerships), shared facilities, and a highly successful international MSc track in Analytical Sciences

Designer drugs are sometimes so similar that it is difficult to distinguish them from each other. This also applies to the designer drug 3-MMC, which has recently been banned. That is why techniques are needed to determine with certainty which drug it is. AIMMS scientists Isabelle Kohler and Hany Majeed were featured in the scientific TV program Atlas (from 5:20 – in Dutch!) to talk about it. Watch the clip here
