Metabolomics measures the concentrations of the large numbers metabolites that are present in biological tissues. Comparisons between the relative concentrations of metabolites can then be made between different population groups in order to determine differences. A variety of biological tissues can be used for analysis including plasma, urine and muscle.
- Analysis of:
Purines & pyrimidines
Sugars and sugaralcohols
Creatinine, creatine, guanidine acetate
(Targeted urinary metabolic profiling with UHPLC-Q-TOF-MS/MS in development)
(Untargeted metabolic profiling with UHPLC-Q-TOF-MS/MS in development)
A list of metabolites included available on request
