    Tissue Metabolomics Service

      Although conventional metabolomics studies often rely on biological samples such as plasma, serum, or urine, which are easy to obtain through minimally invasive or non-invasive methods, they may not fully reflect the metabolic changes at the tissue level of diseases. Therefore, performing metabolomics analysis directly on tissue samples from animal models or human biopsies can more accurately reveal disease-related metabolic changes and mechanisms. Although the acquisition of tissue samples is usually invasive, it allows us to directly compare the metabolites in diseased and non-diseased tissues, thereby deeply exploring the metabolic characteristics and mechanisms of diseases.


      The challenges of tissue metabolomics lie in the heterogeneity of samples, the selection of extraction techniques, and the biological interpretation of data. Furthermore, due to the limited amount of samples, especially when conducting human tissue biopsies, developing an efficient and tissue-saving metabolite extraction process becomes particularly important.
