Metabolomics facilities

For more information please get in touch with Rob Schuurink


The Department of Plant Physiology operates two GC-MS platforms, both with Time-of-Flight mass spectrometers. One serves for high-throughput analyses with nominal mass and the other for accurate mass determination.

We routinely measure

  • volatile terpenoids
  • benzenoids and phenylpropanoids
  • green leaf volatiles

but we also measure derivatized non-volatile metabolites.


We also have a LC-MS triple Quad platform for targeted analysis of non-volatile metabolites such as

  • plant hormones
  • amino acids
  • sugars
  • phenylpropanoids
  • etc.

We have an open policy for collaborative projects and can also perform analysis on a contract basis.
