Biological Metabolism Research Based on DCL™

Background & Overview

Isotope tracer technology is a scientific process that uses radioisotopes or stable isotopes as tracers to study various fields such as physics, chemistry, biology, environment and materials science. This technology has important application value in many fields such as industry, agriculture, biomedicine, etc. For clinical diagnosis and medical research in biomedicine, this technique is used to reveal the mysteries of physicochemical processes in the body and cells, elucidating some of the most fundamental biological questions in the biological basis of life activities, such as protein biosynthesis, nucleic acid structure, metabolism, etc.

Biological Metabolism Research Based on DCL™

At BOC Sciences, our DCL™ technology platform provides deuterated compounds for stable hydrogen isotope tracer technology, which are used as tracers to introduce deuterium atoms into molecules. Using deuterium-labeled compounds, we offer a range of services for routine detection and mechanistic studies of metabolites. It is worth mentioning that our untargeted metabolomics based on deuterium isotope labeling provides a new perspective for the accurate and rapid analysis of various biological samples.

What We Offer

BOC Sciences has developed a wealth of deuterated compounds based on the DCL™ platform, including amino acids, glucose, steroids (steroid compounds), organic acids, etc.; also introduced advanced detection methods to support customers' metabolic research. Our service profile includes:

  • By applying deuterium-enriched tracers to biological systems, study the metabolic pathways, metabolic mechanisms, kinetic parameters of substances, and diagnose diseases.
  • Metabolic studies of existing drug molecules have led to even further synthesis of valuable new drug molecules.
  • Discover new metabolites and determine metabolite structures.
