What are the advantages of Basic Scan?
Basic Scan is ideal for multi-purpose profiling of global metabolism at a reasonable cost. It is suitable for a variety of research areas including medical, agriculture, bioprocessing, etc. and it covers a wide range of sample species. Moreover, Basic Scan reports only the annotated peaks, eliminating unnecessary peaks from huge amounts of analysis data. (We recommend Advanced Scan for those interested in untargeted analysis of unknown peaks.)
What metabolites are registered in HMT’s library?
Our library includes amino acids, nucleotides, nucleosides, phosphorylated organic acids, nucleobases, CoA, organic acids, and nicotinamide cofactors. A detailed list of metabolites that are registered in the library is available here.
What sample types can be analyzed?
We analyze all kinds of samples at HMT. However, please contact us first as certain sample types may be subject to Japan’s customs restrictions.
Is there a minimum order requirement?
We accept a minimum of one sample for Basic Scan. Bulk discount is available depending on the number of samples. Please contact us for details.
Can you quantify the concentration of metabolites?
HMT’s 110 or 353 selected metabolites are quantifiable with single-point calibration. These metabolites can be found in our Annotation List, which is available here.
Please contact us if you would like to quantify other metabolites.
What are the metabolites covered by Basic Scan?
Please refer to our Annotation List for the lineup of measurable metabolites.
Is it possible to analyze lipophilic (or hydrophobic) metabolites?
There are different classes of lipophilic metabolites, so please choose from the following services according to your purpose:
- For a broad overview of changes in lipid components involved in functionality : addition of LC-TOFMS Analysis*
- For a more in-depth look at functional lipids : combined analysis with Mediator Scan
The Annotation List for each plan can be found on their respective download pages.
(*if you wish to add LC-TOFMS Analysis to Basic Scan, please choose Dual Scan instead.)
How much does the analysis cost?
The price will vary depending on the test scale, number of samples and inclusion of any optional analyses. Please contact your local distributor. If your local distributor is not listed here, please contact us.
How do I request for analysis?
Please refer to our Service Flow.
