Metabolomics

Metabolomics capability is being applied to the study of mammalian metabolomes to measure inflammation biomarkers.  Resources include expertise in metabolite profiling using high performance GC- and LC-MS instruments and by direct infusion ESI-MS/MS. 

Metabolic profiling of food extracts uses GC-MS and HPLC-PDA to obtain profiles of the major classes of compounds present: primary metabolites, flavour volatiles and terpenes, lipids, phenolics, anthocyanin and carotenoid pigments.  LC-MS/MS and high resolution GC-MS instruments are used to identify individual plant components and metabolites in human serum resulting from ingestion of plant components and are used to measure dietary compliance.
