SMC is divided into two parts; a service platform and Metabolomics 2.0. The purpose of the service platform is to conduct and implement methods in order to perform metabolite analysis for Swedish researchers. Metabolomics 2.0 is SMC's research and development program which is run by SLU, UmU and Chalmers. SMC is supervised by the platform Director, who (together with the Co-director) has general responsibility for the facility, including financial matters and the Metabolomics 2.0 project. The contact person for researchers seeking information about our services and other relevant advice is the Facility Manager. SMC has also appointed a Steering Committee that will be meet annually to decide about changes in service direction, and with the help of the Facility Manager monitor the platform’s performance and customer perceptions. The committee will also prioritize and review larger projects when necessary. Contact details for SMC and Steering committee are listed below.

The service platform works as a professional consultant facility and is divided into three components; SMC-consulting, SMC-service and SMC-open access. SMC-consulting focuses on formalizing customer inquiries into what is possible from an analytical chemical point of view. SMC-service performs analyses efficiently according to standard operating procedures and the defined project descriptions which have been established by the customer and SMC.  The open access facility offers Swedish researchers the possibility of being involved in or performing their analyses independently. An overview of the current organization is shown in the figure below.
