On Thursday June 27th, 2019 at 5:00 AM (U.S. EST) Agilent Site Reliability Engineers will be working with our Network Service Provider to upgrade the API server for the North American instance. The entire process is expected to be 1 hour, and iLab customers using the API for any features may experience a decrease in performance during this time. More information can be found on the iLab Status Site. For any questions, please contact iLab Support at or by clicking on the 'Help' link at the top of your account page.

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.
