Stable isotope-labeled compounds are used as environmental pollutant standards for the detection of air, water, soil, sediment and food.
In addition to treating various diseases, isotopes are used for imaging, diagnosis, and newborn screening.
Small molecule compounds labeled with stable isotopes can be used as chemical reference for chemical identification, qualitative, quantitative, detection, etc. Various types of NMR solvents can be used to study the structure, reaction mechanism and reaction kinetics of compounds.
Stable isotope labeling allows researchers to study metabolic pathways in vivo in a safe manner.
BOC Sciences is committed to providing customers with isotope-labeled metabolites. We offer the broadest range of metabolite and metabolomic standards.
Metabolomics studies the intracellular and extracellular metabolites in biological systems, which provides abundant information for metabolic changes in organisms, and has been widely used in drug development, clinical diagnosis, and pathological research. Most research objects of metabolomics relate to small-molecule metabolites with a molecular weight of less than 1000. Metabolites refer to intermediate and final metabolites produced in activities such as metabolism. As intermediates and final products of biological processes, metabolites are important indicators of physiological processes, pathological processes, and pharmaceutical responses to therapeutic interventions. Studying the changes of metabolites provide insight into metabolic pathways and disease mechanisms and contributes to the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of diseases.
Isotope labeling technology has been characterized by high rapidity, sensitivity, simplicity, accuracy, and localization capability and has become an indispensable technique for studying biological metabolism. Isotope-labeled metabolites enable the accurate identification of complex metabolites and trace biosynthetic pathways of specific compounds. Moreover, isotopic types and ratios of metabolites provide valuable information for further research. With the help of isotope labeling technology, we can track the metabolic laws of labeled compounds in the body, clarify the activity trajectories of isotope-labeled metabolites in relevant metabolic pathways, and discover the corresponding relationship between metabolites and physiological pathological changes so to explore the mechanism of disease. Isotope-labeled metabolites have been widely used in the study of metabolism, revealing the complexity and plasticity of metabolism and enlightening effective methods for preventing and treating disease.
