The Core Facility Metabolomics (CFM) is housed in the Laboratory Genetic Metabolic Diseases. The CFM is characterized by state-of-the-art mass spectrometry equipment, professional bioinformatics tools and expert knowledge in metabolism. We perform metabolomics, fluxomics and lipidomics (semi-targeted and untargeted) and can also perform targeted metabolite analyses. These analyses include the measurements of phospholipids, triglycerides, sphingolipids, sterols, fatty acids, intermediate metabolites of glycolysis, citric acid cycle, pentose-phosphate pathway, acylcarnitines, nucleotides, amino acids, and many more metabolites. The tests offered by the core facility do not fall under the ISO15189 accreditation of Laboratory GMD. If you are interested and want to know what the CFM can do for your research, please do not hesitate to contact us.

User Council meetings

Every four months the CFM organizes a user council meeting to discuss how the facility performs, how it can be improved with a lookout for innovations in the field of metabolomics, lipidomics and fluxomics.
