Metabolomics Services

Metabolomics Services

Welcome to our Metabolomics Services, where we offer comprehensive solutions for analyzing the complex world of metabolites. As a leading provider of bioanalytical services, Protheragen-ING Lab is dedicated to helping researchers, clinicians, and pharmaceutical companies unlock the secrets of metabolic pathways and uncover insights that drive scientific progress.

Introduction to metabolomics

Metabolomics is the comprehensive analysis of small molecule metabolites within a biological system. By analyzing the metabolic profile of a sample, researchers can gain valuable insights into the underlying biochemical processes and physiological states of an organism or biological system.

Our Metabolomics services leverage advanced analytical techniques and bioinformatics to provide a comprehensive assessment of metabolic pathways and biomarkers. Whether you're conducting research in drug discovery, toxicology, nutrition, or systems biology, our team of experts can help you unlock the power of metabolomics to drive your projects forward.

Our metabolomics capabilities

Targeted Metabolomics

Our targeted metabolomics approach allows for the quantitative analysis of a pre-defined set of known metabolites. This is particularly useful for investigating specific pathways or biomarkers of interest, such as those related to energy metabolism, amino acid homeostasis, or oxidative stress.

Untargeted Metabolomics

In contrast, our untargeted metabolomics services enable the simultaneous detection and identification of hundreds to thousands of metabolites, providing a global snapshot of the metabolic state of a sample. This unbiased approach is ideal for discovering novel biomarkers and elucidating complex metabolic networks.

Sample Preparation and Analysis

We offer comprehensive sample preparation and analysis services, including:

  • Sample extraction and derivatization.
  • High-resolution mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS, GC-MS).
  • NMR spectroscopy.
  • Bioinformatics and data analysis.

Our state-of-the-art analytical platforms, combined with our team's expertise in experimental design and data interpretation, ensure high-quality, reproducible results.
