Multiomics Laboratory

Multiomics Laboratory


dr Katarzyna Juszczyk



The Laboratory has been established for performing analyses of low molecular weight as well as protein components of plant organisms. It cooperates with several Departments of the Institute and different Polish and foreign scientific institutions. The Laboratory has a gas chromatograph, instruments for High- and Ultra-Performance Liquid Chromatography and Mass Spectrometers. Due to the possibility to hyphenate the standard and nano-flow liquid chromatographs with the high resolution OrbiTrap mass spectrometer it is possible to carry out targeted and untargeted metabolomic and proteomic analyses.


·         Qualitative and quantitative analysis of lupine alkaloids – GC-FID

·         Metabolomic analyses – primary metabolites (amino acids, nucleotides, carbohydrates, lipids), secondary plants metabolites (phenols, polyphenols, flavonoids, terpenes, terpenoids, alkaloids)

o   Analysis of metabolomics with biological activity of crops and medicinal plants

o   Analysis of fungal metabolites

·         Lipidiomic: separation and identification of lipids and their derivatives

·         Proteomic: separation and identification of proteins and peptides

·         Spectrometry analysis of individual compounds or fractions (nanoESI ion source with a built-in autosampler - TriVersa NanoMate, Advion)
