Metabolic Research

Metabolomics Mixtures and Kits

Metabolomics is an increasingly important and growing area of research. The use of stable isotopes (as internal standards) in combination with mass spectrometry allows researchers to identify and quantify metabolites in a given biological sample. This information is used to understand the physiology of an organism, its response to a drug, a change in its environment, and/or other external stimuli. It is also used to unravel disease mechanisms and to assess putative biomarkers.

Toward such initiatives, we offer a library of stable isotope-labeled standards (spanning a multitude of metabolic classes and pathways) that are available individually and/or as multi-component mixes or kits. These mixes and kits are designed to aid ease of use in untargeted or targeted metabolomics (for quality control, qualification, and/or quantitation). The mixtures are offered neat or as solutions, while the kits are additionally supplied with a user manual. The manuals outline general procedures and processing examples, as well as alternate method suggestions and data analysis guides for user reference.

Amino Acid Mixtures

Amino Acid Mixtures

CIL offers an amino acid mixture for use in standardization in untargeted and/or targeted metabolite quantification experiments. Read more.
Bile Acid Mixtures

Bile Acid Mixtures

Bile acids (BAs) are steroid-like compounds that act as a detergent in the breakdown of fats. This family of compounds comprises primary BAs (synthesized in the liver) and secondary BAs (produced in the gut by bacteria following modification of the primary BAs). Read more.
