Measurement of Drug Concentration in Animal Tissues (MDCAT) Project

The Measurement of Drug Concentration in Animal Tissues (MDCAT) project was established in 2022 to quantitatively measure drug concentrations in animal tissues within the Raleigh Laboratory in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Minnesota. Our clients have ranged from groups within the University to external organizations. 

Our services include measurement via LC/MS of common drugs of abuse including an extensive list of opioids and stimulants in various tissues. Typical projects involve sending tissue samples (such as from rodent, mini-pig, canine serum or plasma) to our group, then our team processes these samples, measures drug levels, and submits a final report. Fees depend on the scope of the project. If more complex services are needed (i.e., development of an assay to quantitate drug levels not previously measured by our group), we may also be able to assist you.
