Metabolites Method Package Suite
For LabSolutions™ LCMS and GCMSsolution™
Provides ready-to-use methods for over 1900 metabolites
This suite allows comprehensive analysis of over 1900 metabolites without the need for investigation of separation conditions, MRM optimization or parameter settings. The range of metabolites spans both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds, including amino acids, short-chain fatty acids, sugars, nucleotides, bile acids, and lipids. The suite consists of five LC/MS/MS Method Packages including ready-to-use methods for the LCMS-8050/8060 series, the LC/MS/MS MRM Library for Phospholipid Profiling, the Smart Metabolites Database™ for GC/MS(GC/MS/MS), and a Multi-omics Analysis Package.
The Multi-omics Analysis Package included in this product supports not only regular analysis but also large volume data analysis and interpretation. The Multi-omics Analysis Package includes metabolic pathways and other contour maps corresponding to the Method Packages. This makes it easy to visualize fluctuations in the quantitative values of metabolites across metabolic pathways. Data filtering functions and statistical analysis can be applied to the network of compound relationships, providing a total solution for metabolite analysis.
To start analysis without an investigation of measurement conditions, select a method suited to the analysis aims and the relevant compounds. Protocols are also included for extraction from biological tissue, plasma, and feces, as well as derivatization and other pretreatments.
With the included Multi-omics Analysis Package, it is possible to display quantitative fluctuations in metabolites on a metabolic map, and to visualize relationships between metabolites.
