    Pilocarpine Analysis Service

      Pilocarpine, also known by various chemical names such as oocusertp20, 2(3H)-furanone, Pilokarpol, is an alkaloid derived from the South American Pilocarpus plant. It is effectively used in treating primary glaucoma and enhancing salivary gland function. Conducting metabolic analyses of pilocarpine is pivotal; it not only helps elucidate the drug’s metabolic pathways but also fine-tunes dosing regimens to improve treatment precision and personalization. Such analyses are essential for evaluating pilocarpine’s effectiveness and stability, offering vital insights necessary for advancing clinical trials and drug development efforts.

      MtoZ Biolabs utilizes liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) for metabolomic analysis of pilocarpine. This technique combines the high separation efficiency of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with the high sensitivity of mass spectrometry (MS), allowing for the precise detection and quantification of trace components in complex samples. Our services extend beyond identification and quantification to include in-depth studies on the structure-activity relationships, metabolic pathways, and biological activity of alkaloids, providing comprehensive data support.
