Metabolomics Laboratory

NYU Langone’s Metabolomics Laboratory offers custom metabolomics services to our investigators and the greater scientific community. We specialize in mass spectrometry–based metabolomics, offering global (untargeted) and targeted methods for metabolite identification and quantification.

Commonly assayed targets include glycolytic and tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle intermediates, amino acids, nucleotides, and lipids. Using a custom-targeted method, we can perform absolute or relative quantification, flux analysis, and biotransformation analysis. 

Our untargeted platform enables the detection of several thousand metabolite peaks from a typical sample of cells or tissue, focusing on either hydrophilic or hydrophobic metabolites. These data can be used to identify differentially regulated features, candidate markers, metabolite structures, and more.

Whether your goal is to measure a specific metabolite or explore the global metabolome of your samples, we tailor the analyses to your experiment.
