Specialising across biomedical, agricultural and industrial applications

Metabolomics involves analysis of cellular metabolites and is integral to the suite of ‘omics technologies required for systems analysis.

Through our network of metabolomics partner facilities we provide state-of-the-art metabolomics capabilities and customised services, from specific detection and quantification services, through to complex investigations and systems wide analyses in biological systems. Our network specialises across biomedical, agricultural and industrial applications.

Our metabolomics facilities operate as Metabolomics Australia and possess synergistic technologies and expertise enabling a broad range of services to researchers and collaborators.

Our Facilities

  • Metabolomics Australia (Bio21 Institute), The University of Melbourne, VIC

    Metabolomics Australia provides sustainable, state-of-the-art metabolomics research, from life sciences, agri-biotech and the environment, through to bio-nutrition, biomedical and health.

    We have an extensive range of technological capabilities and expertise that delivers on multiple levels. As a fee-for-service laboratory, you can access our entire service or you can ‘cherry pick’ our services and pay only for those you need. No matter what level of service you choose. We guarantee that our entire team is on hand and at your service to help you get the optimal results.

    Situated in the heart of Melbourne’s life sciences research precinct, our unique relationship and physical proximity at the The University of Melbourne’s Bio21 Institute for Molecular Science and Biotechnology and School of BioScience means our team has direct access to the world’s leading researchers in a wide range of disciplines.

  • Metabolomics Australia (Australian Wine Research Institute), SA

    The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) is the Australian grape and wine industry’s own research organisation. It supports a sustainable and successful grape and wine industry through world class research, practical solutions and knowledge transfer.

    The AWRI houses and operates the South Australian node for Metabolomics Australia and specialises in the analysis of trace metabolites and secondary metabolites, including volatiles, biomarkers and chemical quality markers. Whilst the facility has a food and agriculture focus, we have supported many collaborators from the biomedical fraternity.

  • Metabolomics Australia, The University of Western Australia, WA

    The Western Australian node for Metabolomics Australia, based in the Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA) in the Harry Perkins Institute (North), draws upon wide-ranging resident expertise in mass spectrometry, chemistry, metabolism and informatics.

    They provide a comprehensive analytical and data interpretation service for all areas of the life sciences including plant, microbial, environmental and biomedical research.

  • Metabolomics Australia (Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology), University of Queensland, QLD

    The University of Queensland’s Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) is an integrated multi-disciplinary research institute bringing together the skills of world-class researchers in the areas of bioengineering and nanotechnology.

    AIBN seeks to deliver innovative solutions to society’s problems through sustainable materials, healthy living and translational success.

    AIBN offers both proteomics and metabolomics services and advanced collaborative interactions, particularly addressing pressing industrial challenges in cell and metabolic engineering.
