Product Description

mVision™ is Metabolon's full-featured service offering, providing unparalleled insight into the biochemical and physiological state of the organism.

Our Process

Client Samples
Consultation with one of Metabolon's biochemists helps set the study's protocol and determine the appropriate sample sizes. Samples are collected by the client and received at Metabolon.

Global Analysis
The samples proceed through a multi-step process including analysis using three different platforms: LC-MS/MS(+ESI) LC-MS/MS(-ESI) GC-MS

Each detected biochemical is automatically compared to a reference standard in our database, using retention index and mass spectrum. The result is a broad range of biochemicals identified including amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids and cofactors.

Once biochemicals have been identified, the project manager analyzes the data to check for quality and then applies statistical analysis to determine which biochemicals show significant changes.

With hundreds of changing biochemicals in each experiment, the project manager organizes the biochemicals by biochemical pathways and interprets the changes within the context of the existing literature and the experimental design.

mVision provides information on a broad range of biochemicals and how they change in response to experimental variables. The information is delivered to the client in a variety of ways, at a number of different levels to provide a complete picture of the biochemical effects.
