Our Laboratory offers a possibility to perform an untargeted metabolomics using Orbitrap Exploris 120 mass spectrometer*. We have a capability to use the reversed phase (RP) and hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) methods.

Quantitative LC-MS/MS analysis performed in our laboratory allows to measure concentration of selected compounds e.g., amino acids and its derivates, metabolites of nicotinic acid and nicotinamide, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), etc.
