Targeted analysis focuses on the quantitation of a set of known metabolites. The identities of metabolites are initially established according to available databases and/or standards; the identified metabolite are quantified based on internal or external reference compounds. The resulting data can then be used for pathway analysis or as input variables for statistical analysis. Targeted metabolomics provides high data quality based on reliable peak identification and measurement of metabolite integrals. Therefore, these assays can provide greater insights into the dynamics and fluxes of metabolites and promises robust statistical models for distinguishing sample classes with better classification accuracy.
