The Mason Metabolomics Facility
The MMF is operated in the Couch Lab, located in the Institute for Advanced Biomedical Research on the Science and Technology Campus of George Mason University.
Dr. Allyson Dailey MMF Laboratory Director Supported in part by
With funding from
Dr. Robin Couch PI
Our metabolomics platform is based upon several analytical instruments including: Agilent 7890B Gas Chromatograph with 5977B Mass Spectrometer (with a        High Efficiency Source) Agilent 1290 Infinity LC with a 6530 QToF (MS/MS) Agilent 1100 LC-MSD (with interchangeable ESI, APPI, and APCI sources) Three Agilent GC-FIDs, an Agilent GC-NPD, a Beckman semi-preparative       HPLC, and an Agilent preparative HPLC Coupled with both the Agilent Mass Profiler Professional software package and our in-house cheminformatics software, the MMF is capable of both targeted (eg. lipid, amino acid, carbohydrate) and untargeted (global) metabolomic profiling of volatile and nonvolatile metabolites present in biological samples.
