Stable Isotopes

ISOTEC® Stable Isotopes are stable isotope compounds, ranging from gases to complex molecules. These compounds are useful for tracer studies in proteomics and metabolomics, agents for MRI / MRS, and in a wide range of other biomedical applications.

Both tracer and flux studies benefit from stable isotope label assistance. Metabolic pathways can be studied by tracking naturally-occurring and disease-indicated metabolites. Additionally, the effects of exogeneous substances or perturbations on the metabolome can be elucidated with the use of our stable isotope-labeled internal standards coupled with mass spectroscopy determination.
