In Observance of U.S. Holiday, Memorial Day, Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Monday May 27th, 2024. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Tuesday May 28th, 2024. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

Integrated Metabolomics Analysis Core

Overview of Services


Welcome to the Integrated Metabolomics Analysis Core (IMAC) at Texas A&M University (TAMU). Established in 2016 with funding from the TAMU Research Development Fund, the IMAC is the result of a strategic investment in the research infrastructure at TAMU in the field of Metabolomics.


The IMAC operates as a fee-for-service core facility and accepts samples on a first come, first serve basis. Please fill up the Metabolomics Project Submission Form before the initial project meeting. After you submit the form we will contact you to schedule an initial project meeting to discuss your research/service needs (see Contacts) prior to sample/project drop-off.


What is Metabolomics?

Metabolomics is one of the most recent members of the ‘omics’ community of system biology technologies. It is a term that encompasses the study of small molecules and metabolites that are contained within cells, tissues and biofluids of organisms. Metabolomic studies can be ‘targeted’, where specific compounds are analyzed and quantitated or ‘untargeted’, where the ‘metabolome’ is sampled and analyzed to discover compounds that are present. There are many classes of metabolites including amino acids, Krebs Cycle metabolites, sugars, fats as well as fatty acids or bile acids that make up the metabolome. The IMAC will specialize, primarily, in small, polar compounds that can be separated by liquid chromatography or gas chromatography.


The Mission of the IMAC is to provide:

Open access core facility available to all TAMU users for Metabolomics service and research
Different levels of service from drop-off to collaborative projects
Training for TAMU postdoctoral fellows and students to use the state-of-the-art instrumentation in support of specific projects
Short courses and workshops on advances in metabolomics
