Elucidating the metabolic changes that accompany disease states via metabolomics analysis of tissues has become an important avenue of exploration in biomarker and therapeutic target discovery. Conventional harvesting techniques rely on post-euthanasia tissue harvest which introduces ischemic conditions and subsequent metabolome changes that may ultimately introduce artifacts into final analyses. In this chapter, we present protocols for low-ischemia time rapid kidney tissue harvest followed by metabolite extraction for metabolomics studies in rodents.
