The M.J. Murdock Metabolomics Laboratory (MML) is a service center supporting bioanalytical chemistry research at the Institute of Biological Chemistry (IBC) of Washington State University (WSU).

The MML is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation for chromatographic separations (GC, HPLC, UHPLC) and metabolite detection/identification (QTOF-MS, Triple Quad.-MS, Ion Mobility-MS, Ion Trap-MS, MALDI-Imaging-MS).  The MML also hosts equipment for sample preparation, including single cell isolation technology (Laser Capture Microdissection). For a listing of resources click on the "Instrumentation" tab.


As part of our comprehensive metabolite profiling activities, we have generated reference standard materials (primarily prenyl diphosphates and terpenoids). Small amounts of these standards can be requested (including authentication materials; a shipping and handling fee will be charged). For more information, click on the "Services" tab.
