The Australian National Phenome Centre's world class technologies will help transform how long and how well people live, not just in Australia, but around the world.
World class technologies
The Australian National Phenome Centre has been designed to study human metabolic phenotypes using integrated analytical technologies that are sensitive, accurate and highly reproducible. It has one of the largest and most comprehensive capabilities of this kind in the world and is linked to an international network of laboratories to enhance standardisation and harmonisation of technologies.
Our analytical and modelling approaches can be applied to population-scale phenotyping, biomarker discoveries, optimisation of personal nutrition and also for patient stratification in acute and chronic medical conditions including critical care and trauma.
This strategy can also be used to study other biological systems relevant to agricultural production, bioprospecting, environmental health, conservation science and many more.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
The ANPC has one of the largest suites of NMRs in the world for metabolic phenotyping, including an ultra-high field 800MHz NMR with cryoprobe which offers superior peak resolution, spectral dispersion and sensitivity for discovery-driven science.
NMR spectroscopy can be applied to understand molecular structures and quantitative bioanalysis for almost any type of biological liquid or solid. The ANPC exploits the high-field strengths of its NMRs to improve sensitivity, resolution and speed of analysis of biological samples including urine, serum, plasma and tissue.
The ANPC has established an extensive range of mass spectrometry platforms of multiple designs and modalities that are complementary to its repertoire of NMRs.
The internationally-renowned research team leverages these unique capabilities for large-scale epidemiological studies at unprecedented scale and speed.
