Metabolomics

Metabolomics Core aims to improve diagnosis, prevention, and monitoring of diseases through metabolic profiling

About the Metabolomics Core

The Metabolomics Core measures concentrations of small molecules in biological samples on a recharge basis. We strive to provide GLP-quality analytical services at competitive prices, and regularly customize assays to fit our clients’ needs. Services include initial consultation, method development, data collection, interpretation, and presentation. Core competencies include both targeted assays for many analyte classes as well as untargeted assays to evaluate the entire metabolome in biofluids and tissues, measurement of flux through various pathways using 13C-isotopomer analyses, and structural identification of isolated unknowns and potential biomarkers.

The Metabolomics Core uses MiCores, an online system from iLab Solutions designed to stream the process of ordering and billing for core service requests.

Process

Getting Started With the Core

The process for initiating a project with the Metabolomics Core varies depending on your institutional affiliation. Please review our guidelines and forms. Once the necessary steps are completed, your request will be reviewed. A consultation will be scheduled to review the project/experimental design with you and to provide a quote.
