CosmosID Metabolomics Service
CosmosID, a microbiome analysis company based in Germantown, Maryland and Stockholm, has launched a metabolomics service that will support multiomic microbiome research. The new service combines liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to test samples using an "untargeted" approach, enabling broad coverage and highly accurate detection of more than 100,000 metabolites, the company said. A test report lists all detected metabolites within each sample as well as relative quantitation. Additionally, CosmosID runs a sample-type specific targeted panel to complement the "untargeted" analysis and provide greater in-depth analysis of each sample (including absolute quantitation). If more extensive data is needed, CosmosID also offers customizable panels of more than 650 target metabolites, the company said.
