Human health (Neurometabolic disease, cancer biomarkers, Lipidomics, red blood cells and sickle cell disease), drug development (toxicology, metabolism and enzyme induction) environment: development of targeted analytical methods for environmental contaminants in liquid matrices (drinking water, water environmental) or solids (food, plants ...).


The services offered by the platform revolve around the metabolomics mass spectrometry analysis


7 Apparatus mass spectrometry: LTQ Orbitrap XL (2006), LTQ-Orbitrap Discovery (May 2008), Orbitrap-Exactive (November 2009) Q-TOF (2005) 2 Triple quadrupole Quantum-discovery (2004) and Quantum -Ultra (2005), FTICR (7 Tesla, 2006). Aside from FTICR, these instruments are coupled to liquid chromatography systems (LC, UPLC, nanoLC).
laboratory apparatus: extraction robot, spectrophotometers,
fluorescent readers, UV readers
computer stations equipped with software specific to the acquisition and processing of data.
The platform is being equipped with a LIMS (Laboratory Informatic Management System) which will manage the raw data (traceability and archiving). This tool should be operational in the first half of 2010.
