Analysis of human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) offers an important insight into the central nervous system disorders, since its molecular composition depends on brain metabolism. As CSF sampling is an intensive procedure, blood-based markers would be more suitable for large-scale screening of the biomarkers. Matching serum and CSF samples were collected from 53 individuals, and analyzed with GCxGC-TOFMS.

Conference3rd European GCxGC Symposium
OtherExploring the area of Comprehensive Chromatography (GCxGC) and Mass Spectrometry (MS), the symposium program is based on presentations from leading industry and academic experts. Routine applications and topical research are presented and discussed during the 2-day symposium. From 2009 the symposium has grown and evolved in to a significant biannual European conference that each year has attracted an increasing number of delegates.
This year, it is organised in close collaboration with Prof. Dr. Uwe Meierhenrich , University Nice-Sophia Antipolis.
