The Metabolomics Core at Lake Nona supports research programs by performing targeted metabolomics assays by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry and assisting in the interpretation of the results.
The following targeted metabolomics assays offered are:
Quantitation of these analytes by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry is achieved by addition of stable isotope-labeled internal standards to an array of sample types, including extracts of cells in culture, as well as bodily fluids and tissue extracts of model organisms and human subjects. These modules provide crucial information about metabolic pathways involving the three major classes of nutrients: lipids, carbohydrates, and protein.
