We aim to build long-term relationships with our clients by providing flexible access to world-leading facilities in metabolite analysis. We provide an end to end service, starting with design consultation followed by interactive work packages focussing on sample preparation, analysis, data processing and modelling. For more information, queries or quotes please contact the business team contact us.


The Center has historically worked with human blood and urine samples. However via our clinical team we also work with a variety of other biological fluids. The list below outlines the types of samples we are able to work with and for which sample preparation and handling protocols are available. If you have a sample type that does not fall within the list please do message us as we work a range of unusual sample types in collaboration with our academic counterparts.

  • Blood
  • Serum
  • Urine
  • Cerebrospinal fluid
  • Synovial fluid
  • Amniotic fluid
  • Faeces
  • Pleural fluid and sputum
  • Breast milk
  • Saliva
  • Soft tissues
  • Cells
  • Cell culture media

Employing our Precision Profiling and BioExact assay suites our platform is able to measure a broad range of metabolites. These include but are not limited to the following:

Small Molecules including:

  • Amino acids
  • Aldehydes
  • Ketones
  • Carbohydrates
  • Glucuronides
  • Cyclic amines
  • Bile acids
  • Indoles
  • Nucleosides & nucleotides
  • Polyamines
  • Purines
  • Carboxylic acids

Small molecules and lipoproteins and complex lipids including:

  • Phospholipids
  • Sphingolipids
  • Oxylipins & eicosanoids
  • Fatty acids
  • Steroids
  • Cholesterol esters
