Broad Capabilities Across Species & Sample Types

Sample Type

Metabolon has conducted more than 5,000 studies involving a diverse range of biological samples. As a consequence, 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
  • Drosophila
  • Xenopus
  • Zebrafish
  • A wide variety of plant and microbial  species

We have experience with dozens of sample types, including:

  • Urine
  • Plasma
  • Serum
  • Cerebral spinal fluid
  • Whole blood
  • Saliva
  • Food/Ingredients
  • Tumor
  • Organ tissue
  • Cell culture media
  • Raw materials

Once samples are received, 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. 

Samples are then processed in either our CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited clinical diagnostics lab or our biomarker discovery lab. We follow comprehensive SOPs to ensure sample integrity and data accuracy.
