We are pleased to invite you to the final day of the DBS project “Dried blood spots for minimally invasive clinical analysis and early detection of rare diseases (EFA 176/16 / DBS)” (http://dbs.unizar.es/), funded by the Interreg POCTEFA program, which will take place on November 18th, 2021 from 11:00 to 13:30. To attend the conference,…Details
Interview with Prof. Martín Resano to Despierta Aragón from Radio Aragón.
The European DBS project, in addition to investigating the development of less invasive clinical testing procedures, is also investigating how to diagnose Wilson’s disease. In order to have more information and better knowledgement about Cu metabolism, in addition to determining the total concentration of Cu, we also carry out the isotopic analysis of Cu. The…Details
We are glad to share with you the recent results of the project Interreg POCTEFA 176/16/DBS. It consists of Cu isotopic analysis, which can provide valuable information when investigating Wilson’s disease using fs-LA-MC-ICP-MS. More information here.
We are glad to announce the publication of our recent study about a new calibration method, called multi-energy ratios (MER). This study uses multi-signal calibration (MEC) approaches for the determination of non-metals via high-resolution continuum source graphite furnace molecular absorption spectrometry (HR CS GFMAS), in this case, bromine. A novel approach deriving from MEC, MER,…Details
This video explains the method for the determination of cobalt, copper and chromium in urine samples in DBS devices with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The vial containing the device with urine sample is shaken with deionized water for two minutes. We analyze the extract by ICP-MS. null Este video explica el método para…Details
We are pleased to announce the II Workshop about DBS and minimally invasive clinical analysis, which will take place at Amphitheatre IPREM (France), December 19th, 2019. The invited lecturers will share their experience and expertise about both subjects: Dr. Christophe Pecheyran (Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, France), Dr. Martín Resano (Universidad de Zaragoza,…Details
This video explains the method for the determination of cobalt, copper and chromium in DBS samples using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). We stir a vial containing the DBS with blood sample, water and internal standard for two minutes. The extract is analyzed by ICP-MS, a technique which detects low-level concentrations.
We would like to thank everyone who has attended the I Workshop about DBS and minimally invasive clinical analysis, especially Dr. Juan Ignacio Garcés (Director of i3A, University of Zaragoza), Dr. Alberto Escarpa (University of Alcalá) and Dr. José Luís Todolí (University of Alicante). Dr. Martín Resano presented a summary of Project EFA 176/17 /…Details
