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.
Publication spotlight: Metabolic Signatures of Cystic Fibrosis Identified in Dried Blood Spots For Newborn Screening Without Carrier Identification
March 14, 2019
Dr. Britz-McKibbin, one of TMICs core-scientists, and his team at McMaster University have discovered several new biomarkers from a single drop of blood that could allow earlier and more definitive detection of cystic fibrosis (CF), a genetic disease which strikes both children and adults, causing chronic problems with the digestive system and the lungs.
The findings, published online in the Journal of Proteome Research are significant because current newborn screening methods are not accurate enough to identify the disorder in the population, which can manifest itself in many different ways, requiring additional testing and causing further stress for anxious parents.
