Research Institute

We support Research Studies including Genetics, Metabolomics and Biomarker Studies for the diagnostics of tomorrow.

From research to bedside, we pursue translational research.

We strive for supporting your translational research.

From biomarker discovery, high-throughput metabolic screening to the optimization and development of novel laboratory assays. Our Research Division has profound experience to support your research activities with cutting-edge technologies.

Academic Research

We are your industrial partner with a highly experienced team and laboratory instruments for your academic research activities. We have started ARCHIMEDlife Research Institute as an initiative for „bench to bedside“ medical research. We combine several strategies in translational research to advance progress from laboratory discovery to application, and final access for patients. A research process involves clinicians and researchers working together to solve health challenges faster.

Apply for a research grant? Increase your chance by collaborating with us – a service partner with a highly experienced research team and cutting-edge technologies. We have conduced successfully dozens of studies, and supported research teams worldwide with analytical services.

Several translational research projects are underway at ARCHIMEDlife Research Institute, including:

  • Biomarker research for Lysosomal Storage Disorders and others for Rare Disorders
  • Hemoglobinopathies – Better characterization using HR/MS
  • Metabolites involved in oncology
  • Optimizing the work with small sample volumes and multiplexing different technologies to avoid subsequent blood sampling for confirmatory and follow-up testing

Contact, discuss and share your ideas with us:

Metabolic Research

We have several Mass Spectrometry instruments (e.g. SCIEX 6500 QQQ, Thermo Fischer Scientific Orbitrap TM) for quantification of small molecules and discovery of novel biomarkers.

Genetic Research

We are highly experienced in the development of novel genetic tests using state-of-the-art molecular biology methods including Next-Generation Sequencing. We support your biochemical research by genetic testing for e.g. genotype-phenotype metabolic diseases studies or tumor biology.


Our –OMICS Plattform

We offer complete laboratory services (sample management, measurement and bioinformatics) for Small Molecule and Protein Profiling.

Contact us to learn more about our dozens of assays for amino acids and metabolic breakdown molecules, acylcarnitines and fatty acids, steroids, peptides and many more.

BIOCRATES Life Science Kits: We are a laboratory service partner for metabolic profiling using BIOCRATES AbsoluteIDQ® p180 Kit. This Kit quantifies up to 188 metabolites from 5 substance classes (hexose, amino acids, biogenic amines, lipids and acylcarnitines), giving the most comprehensive overview of metabolism in a single assay. It has proven to provide highly accurate and highly reproducible information on the metabolic phenotype used in diverse applications such as Cardiometabolic Diseases, Neurology, and Oncology.


Biomarker Discovery

Identifying relevant biomarkers is to find a needle in a haystack. Nonetheless, biomarkers become more and more important in diagnostic applications, to help to detect or to predict diseases. Biomarkers are mandatory to move towards a more personalized medicine. Highly disease-specific biomarkers hold great promise to monitor progression of disease of patients without or under therapy.

We, at ARCHIMEDlife Research Institute, put significant effort into the discovery and testing of novel biomarkers.
