IntroductionMetabonomics is well established as a means of disease and toxicity screening in experimental animals.
Metabonomics will find increased application in the study of healthy and diseased humans. However, one of the major obstacles in clinical investigations is the greater variability in a human population.
Here, we describe an investigation on the plasma and urine samples of healthy male volunteers designed to evaluate the variability in metabonomic data, when severe life-style and dietary restrictions are imposed.
RAMclust/RAMsearch: efficient post-XCMS feature clustering and annotation of MS-based metabolomics datasetsPoster
Chromatographically coupled mass spectrometry is a powerful tool for profiling, semi-quantitatively or quantitatively, a breadth of small molecules with sensitivity and selectivity.READ MORE
A Novel Benchtop Time-of-Flight GC-MS System for High Performance Analysis of Human UrinePoster
A workflow was developed and implemented for the effective comparison of urine. It involved the preparation of stable compounds through derivatization, data acquisition using a high performance benchtop TOFMS, comprehensive data processing (NonTarget Deconvolution™), and quick retrospective analysis of rich datasets using Target Analyte Finding.
Platform Agnostic Data Processing Routine for Targeted and Untargeted Metabolite Identification in Drug DiscoveryPoster
A discussion of a new informatics solution that addresses common challenges in metabolite identification and characterization--from LC/MS data processing and metabolites prediction to reporting and databasing of assembled biotransformation knowledge.READ MORE
