We provide targeted metabolomics data analysis services, helping to detect and analyze target metabolites quickly and accurately. Once we receive the data from you, we will start the data analysis and provide you the most complete and easy-to-interpret analysis result report.

Introduction to Targeted Metabolomics Analysis

The research of metabolomics is mainly divided into non-targeted metabolomics and targeted metabolomics. Non-targeted metabolomics mainly detects the relative content of metabolites in samples. On the other hand, targeted metabolomics uses standard products as a reference to conduct targeted and specific detection and analysis of specific metabolite groups, which can verify candidate biomarkers and analyze known target compounds.

By analyzing mass spectrometry data, it is possible to quantitatively study the multiple dynamic responses of living organisms to external stimuli, physiological and pathological changes and gene mutations in the level of metabolites in the body. Targeted metabolome analysis is through the enrichment and accurate quantitative qualitative analysis of a specific metabolite in blood, urine or other body fluids and tissues. On the one hand, it can be combined with other experimental data to reveal the relevant molecular biological mechanism of action. On the other hand, it can also provide strong support for the in-depth research, development and utilization of subsequent metabolic molecular markers. The detection and analysis of different metabolites can be used for pharmacokinetic research, clinical diagnosis, inspection of illicit drugs, food and cosmetics and other industrial quality control, environmental testing, pesticide residues, small molecule biomarker verification, and other related research.

Importance of Bile Acid

Targeted Metabolomics Analysis Bile acids are hydroxy derivatives of a class of 24-carbon cholanoic acid synthesized from cholesterol. It is a general term for a large class of cholanoic acid present in bile, in the form of sodium or potassium salt. It is an important metabolite in the hepatoenteric circulation. Bile acids have a variety of important biological functions, such as promoting the digestion and absorption of fat-soluble substances, regulating the body's bile acid metabolism, lipid metabolism, sugar metabolism, and participating in immune processes. It exists in human and animal bile, blood, and feces, and is related to hepatobiliary diseases and gastrointestinal diseases. It is one of the focuses of intestinal microbial research in recent years.

Application Field

Pathological mechanism research, which can be applied to the pathological mechanism research of hepatobiliary diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, and metabolic diseases.

Drug development and treatment effect monitoring.

Auxiliary diagnosis of diseases, assist in the diagnosis of liver and gallbladder diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, genetic metabolic defects diseases, and judge the progress of the disease.

Importance of Amino Acid

Amino acid is a general term for a class of organic compounds containing amino and carboxyl groups. The basic unit of biologically functional macromolecular protein is the basic material that constitutes the protein required for animal nutrition and the most important functional material for life activities. Amino acids participate in biological processes such as energy metabolism, immune regulation, endocrine regulation, and signal transduction. It is closely related to research on tumors, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, nervous system diseases, etc., and related to the growth and development, stress resistance, and maturation process of plants.

Importance of Fatty Acid

Targeted Metabolomics Analysis Fatty acids are the main components of cell membranes. They are divided into short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) and medium-long-chain fatty acids according to the length of the carbon chain. Short-chain fatty acids are organic fatty acids with 2-6 carbon chains. As metabolites of intestinal microbes, they can not only regulate the balance of intestinal flora, but also have the effects of anti-pathogenic microbes, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and regulating gene expression. Medium and long-chain fatty acids refer to fatty acids with more than 6 carbon atoms. They not only provide energy for the life activities of organisms, but also are important signal molecules that participate in the regulation of multiple biological processes such as insulin secretion and immune cells. In short, fatty acids have the functions of inhibiting bacteria and regulating the structure of intestinal flora, and are related to many diseases.
