Our core (NPASR) brings world class expertise and cutting edge LCMS instrumentation to analytical exploration of foods and biologics. We excel at targeted and untargeted metabolomics for biomarker identification and metabolite discovery. Metabolomics is an experimental capability providing unrivaled depth of metabolite coverage to enhance scientific rigor of investigations and competitiveness of grants. We have particular experience in metabolomics as applied to a "crops to clinic" approach with dietary interventions for cancer prevention and support the The Ohio State University Foods for Health Discovery Theme.
- Provide investigators with bioanalytical method development and quantitative analyses of nutrients and phytochemicals in foods and their metabolites in biological samples
- Enhance understanding of the role of dietary compounds in cancer prevention and control
- Metabolite and biomarker discovery through untargeted LCMS metabolomics technique
- Offer broad quantitative targeted Lipidomics and smaller panels for low level lipid mediators of inflammation
