Welcome to Desmosine

State of the art desmosine measurements with the gold standard LC-MS/MS method.

Desmosine: unique to mature elastin

Desmosine is a special amino acid unique to mature cross-linked elastin. Therefore, Desmosine levels in plasma, urine and sputum are specifically reflecting mature elastin breakdown.

An COPD-activity- biomarker is urgently needed

An COPD-activity- biomarker is urgently needed to detect early disease before irreversible lung destruction has developed, for prognosis and to efficiently quantify therapeutic effects on e.g. disease progression in cohorts and individual patients. Lung function tests do not fulfill the requirements for an activity biomarker in COPD.

Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry has evolved to the gold standard for measuring Desmosine

Desmosine is only a valuable biomarker for elastin degradation when Desmosine is measured reliably.


we offer reliable measurement of desmosine using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry
