Metabolomics Core


About the Core


The Metabolomics Core at Baylor College of Medicine provides three major services - Untargeted Metabolomics,  Untargeted Lipidomics, Targeted Metabolomics, and Metabolomics Flux, analysis. Untargeted Metabolomics can measure a wide array of polar and non-polar metabolites (>1000).  Untargeted lipidomics provides global lipidomics profiling and can identify more than ~800 lipids and their classes. Targeted metabolomics offers various pathway-specific targeted assays. It is capable of relative label quantification of more than >500 metabolites from various biological specimens such as serum/plasma, urine, tissue, cells, fecal, and other fluids. Metabolic Flux analysis provides the isotopic pattern of targeted metabolites using isotope-labeled substrates such as glucose, and glutamine in live cells (limited to in vitro), then relative quantifies the changes of the targeted metabolites and targeted pathway.
