    Single Cell Metabolomics Service

      The single cell is the fundamental unit of biological activity, influencing all aspects of an organism’s physiology and pathology, such as growth, development, metabolic regulation, communication, and aging. Understanding single cell metabolic activities is pivotal for addressing broader life science challenges. Single cell metabolomics, by accurately measuring metabolites within individual cells, offers a powerful tool to discern fine distinctions in cellular functions and disease states.


      While all cells are part of the same tissue, their metabolic profiles can differ substantially. Conventional metabolomics typically provide average results from thousands of cells, which masks critical cell-to-cell variations. Single cell metabolomics reveals these nuances, crucial for unraveling the origins and development of diseases, particularly in conditions like cancer that exhibit notable heterogeneity.


      Single cell metabolomics demands meticulous sample preparation, metabolite detection, and data handling. The small quantity and volume of metabolites per cell require highly sensitive detection methods. Furthermore, rapid fluctuations in metabolite concentrations due to physiological changes complicate the analysis.
