METABOLOMICS & PROTEOMICS
Detection and Identification of Proteins or Metabolites at Levels of Parts per Million
Technology advancements in metabolomics and proteomics allow deep understanding of the composition, modification and alteration of specific organisms and can help in depth characterisations of how organism work or respond to specific stress factors. Such tools can be applied not only for biomarker discovery but also to the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.
The Proteomics and Metabolomics solutions proposed use mass spectrometry as the key technology for profiling and quantification of small molecules as well as identification and relative quantification of proteins.
The high resolution Q-TOF LC/MS system available in SICHH can be used routinely in fields such as metabolomics, proteomics, and food safety and delivers great resolving power, improved chromatographic resolution and reduced run times. Proteomics and metabolomics studies can be used in a variety of applications, such as:
- Identification of disease markers
- Study of post-translational modifications of proteins
- Provide information on drug toxicity
- Food authentication and contamination
- Food microbiology
