Drosophila Metabolism Analysis Service

Metabolic analysis is the science of studying chemical processes in biological systems, and is the systematic identification and quantification of small molecule chemicals (including metabolites, small molecule substrates, intermediates and cellular metabolites) at specific time points in biological samples. Real-time detection of metabolites and pathways helps quantify Drosophila phenotypes and biomarker identification, complementing the research gaps in genomics and proteomics, and is widely used in insect toxicology, insect hormone research, endocrinology and disease research.

CD BioSciences provides basic biochemical reagent detection services while developing a combined chromatography and mass spectrometry analysis platform to provide greater and deeper global/targeted metabolomics and metabolic throughput analysis. CD BioSciences is an expert in Drosophila model metabolic analysis involving tissues, cells, organs, etc.

Our Services

CD BioSciences provides identification and analysis of various metabolic profiles targeting the mainstream metabolic pathways in Drosophila.

  • Drosophila Lipid Metabolism
    Lipid metabolism not only provides the body with energy substances, but is also involved in the formation of cell membranes and serves as a precursor substance for hormones and vitamins, and is key to coordinating organ development and physiological responses to tissue autonomous signals and environmental cues. We provide not only the isolation, characterization, identification and quantification of DAG, TAG, and cholesterol, but also support global and targeted Drosophila lipidomics and metabolic analysis.
  • Drosophila Carbohydrates Metabolism
    Sugars are key energy substances for cells and are involved in critical energy metabolism. Carbohydrate metabolism is closely related to obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other diseases. Drosophila is a model organism for disease research, and identification of sugar metabolic profiles is an important research method. CD BioSciences supports customized analysis of a wide range of Carbohydrate.
  • Drosophila Amino Acids Metabolism
    Amino acids are not only the building blocks of biomolecular proteins, but also the precursors for the synthesis of various neurotransmitters. Therefore, high-density detection of amino acids and their metabolites is essential to reveal biosynthesis and neuronal activity. CD BioSciences has developed HPLC, GC-MS and LC-MS/MS platforms that ensure efficient separation of multiple amino acids for targeted quantification and customized analysis of amino acids.
  • Drosophila Metabolic Rate Detection
    Metabolism includes both material and energy metabolism. CD BioSciences provides an accurate and rapid Drosophila CO2 assay platform to measure CO2 output rate and characterize the metabolic rate of Drosophila in vivo. We utilize specialized CO2 analyzers and respirometry systems to provide accurate measurements in single Drosophila.
  • Drosophila Stable Isotope Tracer Analysis
    Metabolic isotope tracer analysis, also called metabolic flux analysis, is used to examine the production and consumption rates of metabolites in cells and tissues, and to obtain the dynamic flow and change patterns of metabolic networks. It can be used for the study of nutritional intake, digestive processes and neural regulation in Drosophila.

Technical Characteristics

  • Metabolites are easy to detect and fill the gap between genomics and proteomics studies.
  • We have developed multiple Drosophila metabolomics databases.
  • Direct characterization of sample metabolites directly reflects the physiological and pathological status of biological systems, and can distinguish phenotypic differences between different individuals of the same species, etc.
