Comprehensive metabolite profiling
This technique allows the detection of compounds with known and unknown structure. The non-targeted analysis of biological samples makes use of all the unidentified peaks in a sample. This can give new insights in metabolic changes between biological samples and could eventually lead to knowledge that can be used for the identification of biomarkers and to uncover the underlying mechanisms of phenotypes.
To study the lipidome allows important insights into cellular processes and bioprocesses. The lipid composition of human samples proves relevant to the understanding of diseases and mode of action of bioactive ingredients (APIs).
Targeted metabolite profiling
Targeted analysis is used to detect a set of known metabolites. This can be a very specific subset of metabolites or all known compounds present in our database. We can adjust our metabolite profiling protocol to the preferential detection of different chemical classes, lipid, polar or aromatic compounds.
We are currently measuring a wide range of compounds, including vitamins, carotenoids, short chain fatty acids, sugars, organic and amino acids.
