The Metabolomics Core provides metabolite profiling analysis to investigators at the University of Utah, the Huntsman Cancer Institute, and outside academic researchers. The Core was originally established 11 years ago as part of the Center of Excellence in Molecular Hematology (NIH 1P30DK072437) and originally provided GC-MS based metabolomics analysis to the hematology community. Since its founding the Core has expanded its capabilities to include LC-MS metabolomics, lipidomics and flux analysis. In short the Core is capable of fully and comprehensively profiling the metabolome.
To maximize the number of metabolites observed the Core is equipped with three chemical analysis platforms, GC-MS, LC-MS and NMR. Please refer to the Services section of the website for further details on the capabilities of each instrument. In addition, protocols for many of our assays are downloadable from this website in PDF form. Core staff will provide additional assay protocols and consultation upon request.
