Broad Capabilities Across Species & Sample Types


Metabolon has conducted more than 5,000 studies involving a diverse range of biological samples. Consequently, we have developed robust, standardized methods for working with nearly any sample type.

We have experience with samples from more than 100 species, including:

  • Human
  • Rat
  • Mouse
  • Dog
  • Cat
  • Primate
  • Drosophilia
  • Xenopus
  • Zebrafish
  • A wide variety of plant & microbial species

We also have experience over 350 sample types, including:

  • Urine
  • Plasma
  • Serum
  • Feces
  • Cerebrospinal fluid
  • Saliva
  • Tumor
  • Whole blood
  • Organ Tissue
  • Cell culture media
  • Food/ingredients
  • Plant (stem, root & leaf)
  • Raw materials

When we receive samples, they are immediately logged into our customized laboratory information management system (mLIMS™). Samples are stored in carefully monitored, temperature-controlled freezers, backed up by generators, until they are ready for processing in our CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited labs. We follow comprehensive SOPs to ensure sample integrity and data accuracy every step of the way.
