Coronavirus: aggiornamenti per la comunità universitaria / Coronavirus: updates for UniTo Community

Mass Spectrometry Unit

Prof. Claudio Medana (Principal Investigator)



The main lines of research activities are the following:

  • Analytical and bioanalytical chemistry for the determination of bioactive molecules (drugs, toxic compounds, metabolic transformation products).
  • High Pressure Liquid Chromatography coupled with high resolution mass spectrometry as investigation tool of biochemical markers of several diseases and of mechanisms of pharmacological and toxicological properties of active substances. A chemical approach to pathology, pharmacology and toxicology.
  • Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry for the determination of Volatile Organic Compound contaminants in environmental / food water analysis
  • Heavy metal analysis in various matrices by ICP-mass spectrometry and atomic fluorescence
  • Characterization of potentially active molecules in herbal preparations of ethnopharmacological interest
  • Mass spectrometry studies in the characterization of photocatalysis transformation products of drugs, doping agents, pesticides, emerging environmental contaminants
  • Molecular identification/quantification in human and animal pathology

Food quality characterization via toxicant/detoxicant chemicals qualitative and quantitative determination.
