The central WCMC facility at the UC Davis Genome Center currently hosts 18 mass spectrometers (8 GC/MS and 10 LC/MS instruments), including eight accurate mass instruments for untargeted metabolomics and three triple quadrupole or QTRAP instruments for targeted analysis of low abundant metabolites. 

In the Hammock, Newman and Taha research laboratories, another 10 mass spectrometers are available for comprehensive analysis of metabolism in the NIH West Coast Metabolomics Center.

Computational and Chemical Resources

The Metabolomics facility is supported by dedicated servers, tools and databases, including a 200 TB mirrored server for raw data storage. The facility stores over 4,500 unique metabolite standards. A range of -80°C and -20°C freezers in addition to grinders, homogenizers, sonicators, incubators, shakers and mixers are available for sample storage and processing.
