Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Metabolomics Center

Our new website is coming soon but in a nutshell:

  • The metabolomics center supports metabolism related projects by measurements of small molecules in a variety of biological samples as well as measuring oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis in live cells, which is complementary to an in-depth metabolomic profiling, allowing a comprehensive metabolic insight
  • The center operates on a collaborative model in which we actively train the users in experimental design, sample preparation and data analysis, all tailored to each study
  • Published collaborations can be found here
  • Our strength is the ability to assist in data interpretation throughout the project
  • We work with a wide range of sample types, including (but not limited to) cells, tissues, and biological fluids (blood, urine, saliva, CSF) from human subjects, research animals, or other organisms
  • The center offer a variety of well-established methods for both targeted and untargeted metabolomic assays using state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation as well as method development to extend the center’s capabilities
  • We believe in creating a mutual language with collaborators, providing our broad support for research projects at all stages
  • To achieve this successfully, we offer comprehensive metabolomics training that covers all aspects of experimental design, sample preparation, technological principles and data analysis. For data analysis tutorials, click here.
  • The center established a unique feature where users around the country/world can access remotely their raw data, process and analyze it using our software to maximize the output of the facility

State of the art instrumentation
