Protocol Design

Prior to the kick-off of your study, Metabolic Solutions will advise you on your stable isotope analysis and tracer experiments. A number of factors, if identified early in the process, can make the study proceed quickly and efficiently. This will include a needs assessment to consider:

  • Analytical methods to be developed or validated
  • Whether the study needs to be GLP-compliant
  • What training may need to be done for the study
  • Optimal kit design including time points and isotope choice
  • Choice of stable isotope analysis and instrumentation
  • Specifics regarding data calculations and interpretations
  • Expected deliverables
  • Reporting and archiving requirements for the study
