Vitas biomarker analytical service offers the highest quality bioanalyses in a variety of matrices for use in preclinical and clinical settings as well as small and large scale epidemiological studies.

With our state-of-the-art technology, we have developed a rich inventory of more than 350 bioanalytical assays spanning a wide range of application areas. Our methods have been used in numerous research projects, and new analytical methods are developed continuously for our customers.

Fatty acids

Fatty acids are a group of long-chained carboxylic acids involved in many biological processes. Analysis of fatty acids is useful in evaluating the nutritional intake and intestinal adsorption of lipids. Vitas offer a a wide range of analytical methods for this type of biomarkers.

Short Chain Fatty Acids

Gut microbiota ferment indigestible dietary fiber to generate SCFAs, mainly acetate, propionate and butyrate. Due to their anti-inflammatory properties, short-chain fatty acids may have a wide range of beneficial effects on your body including chronic diseases like neurodegenerative conditions, obesity, diabetes, immunological conditions, and intestinal disorders. 


Vitamins are essential micronutrients that humans and animals need in small amounts for various roles throughout the human body. There are thirteen vitamins all together, some water soluble and some lipid soluble. We master them all.

Amino acids

Amino acids are molecules used by all living things to make proteins. The human body needs 20 different amino acids to function correctly. Nine of these amino acids are so called essential amino acids as they cannot be produced by the cells themself but must be obtained through the food we eat.


Proteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs.

Minerals & Metals

Vitas can offer high quality mineral & metal analytical services with the use of highly specific and sensitive instrumentation for elemental analysis – Inductively Coupled Plasma and mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)


In biology, lipids are defined as hydrophobic or amphiphilic molecules and constitutes a large diverse group of molecules responsible for numerous biological functions including membrane structures, energy storage, signal transduction and regulation of gene expression. In addition, lipids have also several applications in cosmetic and food industry.
