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.
