Overview

Metabolomics Australia (MA) is a NCRIS  funded national Metabolomics service centre.  MA was founded in 2007 and is the first high throughput Metabolomics facility in Australia. MA services are focused on all areas of technology for small molecule analysis with the aim of providing access to world leading advances and technology for academic and private Industry.  Metabolomics describes the analysis and identification of the complement of small molecules (metabolites) in biological systems such as mammals, plants, animals, and microbes. Metabolomics aims to monitor the changes of particular metabolites following genetic or environmental stimuli and those are then used as biomarkers of health, disease and/or quality.  MA is the leading metabolomics service provider nationally. In addition, MA develops new technologies for metabolite analysis and identification, therefore continually establishing new collaborations with research groups throughout the Australian and international biotechnology communities.
