Metabolomics

Within NMR for Life, the Swedish NMR Centre is a national facility for metabolomics by NMR.

In addition, together with the Umeå-based MS-facility, we provide access to the Swedish Metabolomics Centre.

The instrumentation in Gothenburg involves an automatic cooled sample changer hooked up to an 800 MHz magnet. Sample handling is automated and followed through a bar-coding system. Using standard 1D experiments,  the system will support a throughput of approximately 120 samples per day.

Project applications can be submitted either through the form here or through the Swedish Metabolomics Centre. All applications are subjected to review by a scientific advisory board.

Information on what is feasible and how to handle sampling of biological material (blood, serum, urine etc.) for the best possible NMR results is described here (SOPs being defined and available soon).

The Swedish NMR Centre employs a highly automated workflow for both solution (Göteborg) and solid state (Umeå) NMR metabolomics studies

Metabolomics within nutrion and sports research

Metabolomics is an area of research that has come to the fore in the biosciences in recent years. Metabolomics can be described as a way of studying metabolites — that is, molecules in a biological sample — in a single chemical analysis.

Helen Lindqvist and Anna Winkvist make use of metabolomics in nutrition research. 

They study our eating habits

 

 

University of Gothenburg sports researcher Ulrika Andersson Hall studies has used metabolomics to analyse blood. She sees great development potential in science through use of the NMR Centre in the future.

She studies fat oxidation during exertion
