Core Services


The Center for Metabolomics & Isotope Tracing (CMIT) at Washington University in St. Louis provides a solution for all of your metabolic needs. CMIT combines a breadth of instrumentation with advanced in-house informatics platforms to accommodate a wide range of applications. Equipment is regularly refreshed to continuously push the limits of measurement science. Technologies currently available include: GC/MS and LC/MS workflows; EI, ESI, DESI, and MALDI sources; time-of-flight and Orbitrap analyzers; trapped ion mobility spectrometry and traveling wave ion mobility spectroscopy; NMR spectrometers; and high-resolution respirometers.


We offer a wide range of metabolic services that are broadly applicable to any sample type including plasma, serum, urine, stool, tissues, plants, and cells in culture.
