Metabolomics and Mass Spectrometry Platform






The Metabolomics Platform offers both GC-MS and LC-MS services, access to equipment for sample preparation and a comprehensive set of tools for reliable data analysis based on a statistical evaluation. Moreover, to address the needs in this fast-changing field, the Metabolomics Platform continuously develops new analytical and tailor-made methods to address upcoming biological and biomedical questions. This includes targeted and non-targeted GC-MS as well as LC-MS analyses, semi-quantification and absolute quantification of metabolites extracted from several sample types, including mammalian cells, bacteria, yeast, body fluids and soft tissues. The platform hosts three cutting-edge LC-MS systems (Agilent 6560 Ion Mobility Q-TOF, Thermo Q Exactive HF, Sciex Q-Trap), one IC-MS system (Dionex ICS-6000 – Thermo Q Exactive), and two Agilent GC–MS served by multifunctional sample preparation robots. Using these state-of-the-art technologies and standardised laboratory protocols, the Metabolomics Platform strives to offer high quality mass spectrometry-based measurements of a wide range of small molecules in biologically relevant samples.
