About Me: Dr. Andy Zoellner studied biology at the Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany.After his Ph.D. thesis at her lab and a first PostDoc time, he decided to join PomBioTech (www.pombiotech.de).
The use of steroids as doping substances has a long history. Assessing some doping metabolites can be very difficult. PomBioTech GmbH has been able to successfully produce a metabolite of the anabolic steroid metandienone. The combination of chemical and biotechnological methods has made it possible to produce and purify a doping metabolite that could previously not be synthesized.
Optaining P450-metabolites and N-glucuronides for metabolites in safety testing (MIST) used to be difficult and time consuming. Thanks to a new method patented by PombioTech GmbH, it is relatively easy to produce human phase I and phase II metabolites.
