Metabolomics is defined as the non-biased quantification and identification of all metabolites present in a biological system but in practice the term metabolomics is used in a rather broad sense and covers many different analytical methodologies. To address the challenges associated with metabolomics, a comprehensive, integrated analytical and data handling platform was developed that provides a chemo-centric global metabolomics analyses of biological systems. The analytical platform incorporates three UHPLC/MS/MS accurate mass methods and a GC/MS method which increases the overall coverage of small molecules in a biological sample. This integrated platform allows the robust, high-throughput collection and analysis of analytical data and accurately identifies a large number and broad spectrum of biochemicals thereby facilitating biochemical interpretation of metabolomic experiments.
