Short-Chain Fatty Acid Panel

The Short-Chain Fatty Acid Panel is designed to support studies of the gut microbiome, focusing on this particular class of metabolites.

  • Absolute quantitation of Acetic acid, Propionic acid, Butyric acid, Isobutyric acid, Valeric acid, 2-Methyl-butyric acid, and Caproic acid (Hexanoic acid)

  • Precision – Calibrator and Quality Control sample precision (% CV) typically <10%

  • Small amount of sample required, typically 100 -200 µl plasma/serum or 100 mg fecal samples

  • Fast turnaround time, typically 3-4 weeks for most projects

Key Advantage – Reproducible Results

  • Fully quantitative LC-MS/MS method with minimum of 6 to 8 calibrators per metabolite

  • Wide range of sample matrices

  • Proprietary technology facilitates low level quantitation in plasma/serum samples

  • Matching stable labelled internal standards for each analyte

  • Analyte panel customizable with additional metabolites such as lactate and other organic acids

  • Calibrator and quality control sample precision (% CV) typically <10%
