isotopic services

Isotopes - variants of chemical elements that differ by their numbers of neutrons - are important for a host of both scientific and industrial research applications. Non-radioactive and stable by nature, stable isotopes are stable physical properties of isotopes so that they can be used for diverse analytical and experimental applications, in contrast to the radioactive isotopes. With more than 20 years of experience in this field and a dedicated team of professionals, BOC Sciences provides a full range of isotopic services for its customers including Custom Synthesis, Stable Isotope Labeling Services, Stable Isotope Testing Services, and SILAC Technical Services These are well-suited to Pharma, Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Sciences related research and development.

Case Study

Unraveling Cancer Metabolism: Advancements in Stable Isotope-Resolved Metabolomics

Over the past few years, the development of advanced analytical technology such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS) has allowed extensive profiling of the human metabolome, fueling a resurging interest in metabolism in diseases like cancer [1]. By combining stable isotope tracers with metabolomics technologies, researchers can follow single atoms through metabolic networks, allowing new metabolic reprogramming in diseased state, identification of potential lead drug targets, and pharmacology and therapeutics. Scientists discuss the use of stable isotope-resolved metabolomics for deciphering metabolic reprogramming in colorectal cancer as a case where it excellently captures tumor metabolism, elucidates potential personalized therapeutic approaches, and contributes to progress in clinical diagnostics. The merging of isotope tracer-based imaging technologies with metabolomics data also facilitates real-time measurements of treatment response and tumor growth, demonstrating the transformative utility of this technology for advancing our understanding of systemic illnesses and paving the way for personalized therapeutic strategies.


1. How are stable isotopes used in medicine?

Medical stable isotopes applications The MRI used to Image muscles, organs, joints, and many details in diagnosing diseases. They are tackled from the metabolic pathways they track in research and the way physiological processes are studied. Also specific isotopes destroy them offering the advantageous method other illnesses and most cancers radiation cure, minimizing damage to wholesome cells. This is why stable isotopes can greatly help in medical diagnosis, research, and treatment in general..

2. What is the isotopic tracer technique?

The stable isotope tracer method is the use of stable isotopes such as 13C, 15N, or deuterium to follow the movement of atoms through a system. Research focussed on exchanges between different atoms in molecules (e.g. substrates taken up by a biological sample for biosynthesis or metabolism) by substituting such atoms with their isotope, and monitoring their distributions over time, provides assistance in study of various biological or chemical events. It is a widely-used technique in biochemistry, medicine, and environmental science where it has also been employed in studying metabolism, nutrient cycling and reaction mechanisms.

3. Which isotope is useful tracer?

An isotope that is often used as a tracer in medical applications is carbon-13 (13C). In metabolic studies, it is frequently employed to follow the metabolic pathways and organ function. Nitrogen-15 (15N) and Oxygen-18 (18O) also are used as tracers in some medical research contexts. Each have different properties that lend them to specific applications and info one might be seeking.
