About us

The Research Core Unit (RCU) Metabolomics is a service laboratory primarily intended for research groups at the Hannover Medical School (MHH). It meets the Basic Requirements for Research Infrastructures in Europe issued by the European Science Foundation.

 

Analytic spectrum

Simultaneous quantification of various endogenous metabolites by means of GC- and LC-MS/MS.
Focus: Nucleotidomics (including modified nucleotides), neurotransmitters and neurotransmitter metabolites, steroid/metabolomics/bile acid kits, selected drugs, non-targeted analyses
