Capabilities & Resources

The Center of Metabolomics has seven (LC-MS/MS) and two gas chromatography time of flight mass spectrometry (GCxGC TOF-MS) instruments that are capable of performing targeted and general metabolomic studies.


Our targeted metabolomic capabilities include metabolites listed in clinical and research testing. In addition, we offer targeted metabolomic analysis of various biological samples using the Biocrates Metabolomic P180 kit.


Our general metabolomic capabilities are performed on the Leco Pegasus 4D GCxGC TOF-MS. Applying trimethylsilyl derivatization to make volatile metabolites for GCxGC TOF-MS enables the analysis of a wide range of metabolites including organic acids, fatty acids, amino acids, sugars and nucleic acid bases.
