The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event with all product staff. iLab Support will be staffed at significantly reduced levels and will focus on critical issues only (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing). For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here) and we will prioritize those requests first. Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

Metabolomics Core Facility (Huck)

Overview of Services

The Metabolomics Facility conducts mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy-based metabolomics studies on a variety of biofluids and tissue extracts from plant and animal sources. The Metabolomics Facility has six Mass Spectrometers and licensed software for data analysis.

We provide GC-MS as well as LC-MS and LC-MS/MS services for people looking to process their biological or chemical samples, followed by methods for analyzing this data. The Metabolomics Facility has six pieces of equipment for this data acquisition. They are an Agilent 5975C GC-MSD System, a Waters Xevo TQS, a Waters TQD, a Waters Synapt G2S a ABSciex TripleTOF 5600, and a Thermo-Scientific Exactive Plus.

In addition samples can be analyzed using the Chemistry Departments Bruker Avance III 600 MHz NMR Spectrometer.
