New Biotransformation Prediction Engine Integrated into a Metabolite Identification Solution
Published: March 2, 2018
In the analysis of xenobiotic metabolism, the main analytical platform for studying experiments is liquid chromatography coupled to a high resolution mass spectrometer. There have been a number of advancements in the hardware used, as well as the software that processes these data. However, bottlenecks remain in the workflow and especially in the structure elucidation phase. A new prediction algorithm was developed to aid in the identification of possible metabolites within an LC/MS dataset. The work presented here describes the integration of new prediction methods that determine the likelihood of biotransformation reactions, and subsequent metabolite identification within an automated processing routine.
