Molecular and Metabolomic Imaging Laboratory

  • Obtain metabolic profiles from tissues, biopsies, biofluids, and cultures using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
  • Acquire magnetic resonance microscopic images from tissues and small samples (insects, animal model organs, etc.).
  • Obtain molecular images from tissues and small samples (insects, animal organs models, etc.).
  • Analyze clinical magnetic resonance images using multivariate mathematical models.
  • Bruker AVANCE 600 MHz NMR Spectrometer with spectroscopic probes for determination in semi-solid (HR-MAS1H/13C/15N) and liquid (QXI 1H/13C/15N/31P) systems and micro-imaging probes (10mm/5mm/2mm).
  • BCU-Xtreme cooling unit for low-temperature measurements.
  • Gilson 215 for automated sample preparation and pipetter, used for the automated preparation of liquid samples in NMR tubes.
  • Upright ultra-low temperature freezer (-112ºF) for the storage of samples and for longer terms. Cryogenic container with liquid nitrogen (-320.8 ºF).

Current equipment allows the researchers to work with intact samples (500μ liquid or 10-40 mg tissue) so that, once measured, it is possible to carry out other tests.

Probes available allow researchers to obtain the metabolic profile in liquid samples with a volume of 500μ (5mm tubes) and with a volume of 50μ (1mm capillaries).
