Recently, BOC Sciences, a well-known chemical and pharmaceutical raw material supplier headquartered in New York, announced that it will provide an extensive catalog of isotope products and services. —
Nuclides of the same element with the same number of protons and different numbers of neutrons are isotopes. Isotope labeling is the use of unusual isotopes as tracers or markers in chemical reactions. In general, the atoms of a given element are indistinguishable. However, different non-radioactive stable isotopes can be distinguished by mass spectrometry or infrared spectroscopy. Some of the most common stable isotopes are 2H, 13C and 15N, which can be further made into NMR solvents, amino acids, nucleic acids, lipids, common metabolites and cell growth mediators. Metabolic flux analysis using stable isotope labeling (MFA) is an important tool to explain the flux of certain elements through intracellular metabolic pathways and reactions.
Application of isotope labeling
Quantitative and qualitative studies of the metabolism of active compounds.
Isotope labeling can be used as an analytical standard for the quantitative analysis of organic compounds.
Isotopic labeling can also be applied in histone analysis to enhance the accuracy of relative quantitation between two samples.
Isotope tracers can be used to examine processes in natural systems, especially terrestrial and aquatic environments.
Stable isotope-labeled compounds can be used to study human mineral nutrition and metabolism.
BOC Sciences offers a series of market-leading isotope-labeled products including labeled amino acids, labeled APIs, labeled building blocks, labeled carbohydrates, labeled fatty acids & lipids, labeled impurities, labeled inhibitors, labeled metabolites, labeled nucleic acids, labeled peptides, labeled polymers, labeled steroids, and labeled vitamins, etc. In addition, BOC Sciences provides a wide range of products and services such as customized radioisotope products and stable isotope labeling services to support development or research programs.
