The ADME Mass Spectrometry Center will be hosting this free training session by Biocrates, which uses targeted mass spectrometry-based metabolomics to analyze over 180 endogenous small molecules in 10uL of sample. These compounds are include acylcarnitines (markers of energy metabolism, fatty acid oxidation, ketosis), amino acids (markers of neurotransmitters, gluconeogenesis/glycolysis, urea cycle), biogenic amines (cell cycle progression, DNA stability, neurological disorders), hexoses (carbohydrate metabolism), phosphatidylcholines (dyslipidemia), lysophosphatidylcholines (membrane damage), and sphingomyelins (signaling cascades). Fluids and tissue homogenates from any species can be analyzed in a simple 24 hr experiment.
The metabolome – the complete set of small molecule metabolites arising from biochemical processes in various compartments of organisms – is dynamic and complex. The AbsoluteIDQ p180 Kit quantitatively analyzes a large number of metabolites that have already been identifi ed as part of key biochemical pathways, providing fundamental data to link changes in the metabolome to biological events.
This is a free two day training which includes software training and sample preparation, hands on lab work, plate preparation and test run MS, LC-MS/MS method setup and training on Met/DQ software and data analysis.
