About the Analytical Core for Metabolomics and Nutrition

The Analytical Core for Metabolomics and Nutrition has advanced analytical equipment to measure a diverse range of biological compounds.  The facility has gas chromatographs, high pressure liquid chromatographs and various detectors (photodiode array, evaporative light scattering, fluorescence, mass spectrometer), sample preparation equipment (speedvac, freeze-dryer, mixers, centrifuges, etc), plate readers, and automated analyzers for clinical and biochemical analytes of interest.

Two state-of-the-art systems for targeted and untargeted metabolomics analysis are highlights of the core’s analytical portfolio.  A gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS) with Waters TargetLynx principle component software and an Agilent ultra-high pressure liquid chromatograph with quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometer (UPLC-QTOF) and Mass Profiler Professional metabolomics software and pathway analysis.
