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:
- A wide variety of plant & microbial species
We also have experience over 350 sample types, including:
- Cerebrospinal fluid
- Whole blood
- Organ Tissue
- Cell culture media
- 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.
