Facility Details

The Sanford Burnham Prebys Cancer Metabolism Core provides a unique service for the analysis of metabolism, offering both metabolite quantification and stable-isotope tracing methodology, centered around gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). We offer GC-MS analysis of polar metabolites (TCA cycle, glycolysis metabolites and amino acids), short chain fatty acids, fatty acids and cholesterol, sugars and sugar-phosphates. As well as cells, we can also analyze tissues, tumors, serum or culture medium as necessary. We also have available a YSI 2950 analyzer for measurement of glucose, lactate and glutamine in medium samples. We collaborate closely with Core users and can provide in-depth advice on the direction of metabolic experiments, as well as the interpretation of results.
