Thanares Thiede Analysis and Research GmbH was founded in 2001 in Dresden. In February 2007 the company relocated to the Hermannswerder Biotech Campus in Potsdam. Not just a provider of analytical services, Thanares Thiede Analysis and Research GmbH also takes part in innovative research projects. Research and development into new medical products has long been part of the company’s mission.
Key analytical focus
Our key focus is on medicine and pharmacology. Moreover, using methods developed at Thanares GmbH we can analyse selected substances in the field of nutritional physiology and kinetics. Most of the methods developed and established at Thanares can be used to help resolve medical/phytopharmacological issues, whereby analyses are performed in the biological matrix (tissue, plasma, urine).
In recent years techniques have been developed for determining diverse flavonoids, flavonoid glycosides, hypericin, boswellia acids, cumarin, iridoids and their glycosides, phenyl carbonic acids, isoflavones, phenols and their glycosides, kavapyrones and other plant substances.
In the field of medical diagnostics the emphasis is on neurotransmitters and their metabolites in body fluids such as plasma and urine. Here we have years of proven experience.
Most noteworthy among the new diagnostic procedures are the methods developed by Thanares for assaying phosphatidic acid (PA) and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). In addition, a comprehensive inventory of methods is available for the determination of endogenous radical markers in a biological matrix, e.g., such as malondialdehyde, 8-OhdG, o,o-dityrosine, o- and m-tyrosine, nitrite and nitrate, uric acid, xanthine and hypoxanthine.
The procedures are all based on high-performance liquid chromatography and various detection systems. Electrochemical detection (amperometric/coulometric) is a key focus. Different systems with fluorescence detection (pre- and post-column derivatisation) are also available. Our customers include smaller as well as large pharmaceutical companies, institutes and diagnostic laboratories, as well as research groups at institutions of higher learning.
Thanares GmbH is interested in cooperation in all the above mentioned areas.
