The Metabolomics Innovation Centre (TMIC) is a non-profit metabolomics core facility at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, founded by Dr. David Wishart, a pioneer and leader in metabolomics, to provide metabolomic analysis. We provide an accessible, affordable alternative to a commercial company in industry, all while maintaining strict standards of quality and accuracy. Explore our metabolomics services, including mass spectrometry (LC-MS, GC-MS, ICP-MS), NMR, and UV-LC. We do targeted and untargeted metabolomics, plus proteomics and lipidomics. We use both in-house and third-party assays to identify, measure, and quantify metabolites involved in various organisms and metabolic pathways from many sample types (human, animal, plant, vitamin, cholesterol, steroids, nucleobases, etc.). Our work enables biomarker identification and validation. We create software, web servers, and databases for the metabolomics community and for the public. We are experts in metabolomics, and we produce experts. Check out our tutorials, our publications, our quality management at work for our clients, our research hotel for those new to metabolomics research, and more!
Because all matter is composed of metabolites, metabolomics can be applied in a vast, and potentially any branch of science. In this way,
it is possible to measure hundreds and thousands of molecules in different matrices, such as waters, soils, food, plants, animal tissues,
biological fluids, beverages, medicines, or drugs, etc. The knowledge of these metabolites, their quantification, their complex metabolic
interconnections, and their biological significance, provides extraordinary knowledge, as well as possible solutions, interventions,
therapies, and practical applications in any field of research.
