The M. J. Murdock Metabolomics Laboratory provides high-quality, cost-effective services for metabolomics research at Washington State University, and for academic and industrial collaborators elsewhere.

Besides routine metabolomic analysis services, the laboratory also provides consulting for issues related to experimental design, sample processing, and data analysis (incl. structure elucidation and statistics).  In addition, the laboratory offers various custom services.

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, see below.
