TMIC is North America’s premiere single source destination providing fee-for-service metabolic profiling. We offer a broad range of custom metabolomics services to fill any need. If you want the fastest, most quantitative and comprehensive metabolomics facility on the continent, you’re at the right place.
Metabolomics is an emerging field of "omics" research specializing in the near global analysis of small molecule metabolites found in living organisms. Its applications are already being seen in a broad range of disciplines including disease diagnostics, agriculture food and safety, and pharmaceutical R&D.
Vital to metabolomics research is the ability to share it with the wider community. Since 2006, the Wishart lab at the University of Alberta has made its research publicly available, developing metabolomic databases, programs and web servers accessed by researchers and private sector partners worldwide.

TMIC's first Research Hotel competition wraps up
October 01, 2018
TMIC has just finished its first competition for a stay at its Research Hotel. The competition is currently closed and applications are under review. Applicants will be notified by the end of October.
The hotel, which has been gaining popularity since the program began in 2011, gives visiting scientists, students and postdoctoral fellows office and bench space at TMIC’s central facility at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. They conduct their own experiments, expand their knowledge of metabolomics, receive one-on-one mentoring, and share in-person in the TMIC experience. Keep an eye on our website for future competitions and announcements!
