It’s important to note that untargeted metabolomics approaches are not limited to these classes and can detect a wide variety of other metabolites as well. The comprehensive analysis of these compound classes through untargeted metabolomics helps researchers uncover the metabolic capabilities of microbial communities, identify biomarkers of microbial activity, and understand the intricate interplay between the microbiome and host health.
In addition to our untargeted metabolomics services, we provide a set of targeted panels for dedicated analysis of:
- Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) – Targeted method to quantify fatty acids including: Acetic acid, Formic acid, Propanoic acid, 2-Methylpropanoic acid, Butanoic acid
- Amino Acids and Organic Acids
- Bile Acids
- Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs)
The specific methods used for microbiome-metabolomics depend on the information you intend to uncover from your samples.
