helps to solve your problems with tracers and standards"
The stable isotope 13C is safe and consumer-friendly as it is non-radioactive.
Our labelled products - ranging from 1.1% to 99% enrichment - enable scientists in
medical, nutritional, pharmaceutical, biochemical and environmental sciences to track
and trace transport and transformations in living organisms
(humans and animals) and in the environment. Our products are often used to support health
claims (Applications | Example
Stable isotope-labelled plants (e.g. Arabidopsis, tomato), plant
extracts or phytochemicals are used as 13C-Internal
Standards for the identification and quantification of metabolites in natural, unlabelled
samples by LC-MS or GC-MS techniques in metabolomics (Applications | Example Metabolomics).
