Metabolomics is an emerging field of “omics” research specializing in the near global analysis of small molecule metabolites (< 1500 Daltons) found in living organisms. Though the field of metabolomics is relatively new, its applications are already being seen in many disciplines including disease diagnostics, agriculture food and safety, and pharmaceutical research and development. These applications are leading to the discovery of many biomarkers and the development of improved screening methods. Metabolomics utilizes a number of different assays for quantitative analysis and identification of metabolites in a variety of sample types.
By working closely with The Metabolomics Innovation Centre (TMIC), 1st BASE provides real-world proven technologies with top-of-the line metabolic analysis from biofluids, tissues, bioproducts, bioprocesses, or crops. The quantitative metabolic analysis is offered by combining NMR, GC-MS, GCxGC-MS, HPLC-UV/FD, LC-MS, DI-MS, and bioinformatics.
