Biomedical Metabolomics Facility Leiden: Metabolomics Profiling Services for industry and academia

BMFL operates at the frontier of metabolomics developments and opportunities and offers the perfect environment for advanced metabolomics studies. BMFL is unique in its ability to customize analyses to specifically fit the needs of its customers - academia, industry and clinics. Other unique features are the availability of an oxylipid-platform that provides quantitative analysis of a combination of the most prominent oxylipids and eicosanoids, and an oxidative/nitrosative  stress platform covering isoprostanes and nitro fatty acids. Finally, BMFL is capable of handling large-scale studies.

BMFL employs fully validated, cutting edge platforms that each cover a part of the human metabolism and together span the complete human metabolome. BMFL works according to ISO17025 guidelines and has implemented rigorous quality standards, resulting in robust data that enable truly comparative studies.

Netherlands Metabolomics Centre

BMFL was set up as the core facility of the Netherlands Metabolomics Centre and is now a core facility in the University of Leiden. Facilities and expertise are available to academic, industrial and clinical parties worldwide. The BMFL team is proud of its long-standing experience, which covers the complete track from involvement in experimental design, study set-up and sample collection to the actual metabolomics measurements, data analysis and comprehensive feedback on the results. Being embedded in the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research and the Netherlands Metabolomics Centre ensures quick recognition and incorporation of new technological opportunities, which enables continuous improvement and expansion of the BMFL portfolio.
