Metabolomics is a rapidly emerging discipline dedicated to the global study of metabolites in biological systems, their dynamics, composition, interactions, and responses to interventions. The metabolome can be studied as an intermediate phenotype linking the genotype and the environment.


Helsinki Institute of Life Science - HiLIFE
FIMM Metabolomics/Lipidomics/Fluxomics Unit: high-throughput untargeted and targeted metabolomics and lipidomics analyses in various biological and clinical samples with biostatistical analyses as an option; and customised metabolic flux analyses using tracer studies.

Helsinki University Lipidomics Unit (HiLIPID): customized lipidomics services for mechanistic biomedical, veterinary, basic biological, ecological and environmental research; expertise includes analysis of lipid, fatty acid and lipid mediator profiles, and studying lipid metabolism by using labelled precursors.

Viikki Metabolomics Unit - ViMU: plant metabolomics and metabolomic profiling; targeted and non-targeted analysis of microbial metabolites, analysis of drug metabolites and other synthesis products.
