Metabolomics Sample Submission

Request for Analysis

Due to the complex nature of most metabolite profiling experiments, we request that prior to the commencement of a new project all involved parties meet with facility personnel to discuss the details of the project and the experimental plan. Once an experimental plan has been established, sample submission and analysis will be scheduled based on availability of instrument time.

Before submitting samples please complete an iLab service request. After your service request and budget is approved by both sides: 1) request a PO and update the PO number in iLab, 2) print the sample list to be submitted along with samples, 3) label your box with iLab project ID (e.g., 20200115-PMF-Johnson-SJ-345), 4) notify facility staff of your shipping date. It is recommended to ship out no later than Wednesday in case of any delays.

For further information or to schedule a meeting about a potential project please contact us.


Frozen samples should be shipped on dry ice using overnight service (FedEX preferred).
