The Australian Wine Research Institute

The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) focuses on metabolomic analysis of biological samples, including those associated with food and beverage industries, which are areas of strategic and economic importance to Australia. The AWRI specialises in microbial metabolomics, utilising cutting edge analytical techniques and advanced computational technologies to advance microbial systems biology.

The AWRI facility offers:

  • metabolomics analysis using liquid chromatography, gas chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry in combination with advanced data handling techniques
  • method development for targeted and non-targeted analysis of volatile and non-volatile metabolites
  • identification of unknown metabolites
  • quantification of trace volatiles and sensometabolomics
