Untargeted analysis is one of the major approaches used in the metabolomics field. In this traditional approach, the complex data are acquired by MS or NMR and then analyzed by multivariate statistical analysis after subjecting the data to preprocessing steps such as baseline correction, peak alignment and background or solvent peak removal, if necessary. Subsequently, metabolite features that distinguish sample classes are identified and then the structures of distinguishing metabolic features are established.
Our center provides the following MS- and NMR-based global analysis services through its major center at SLU or its two satellite centers at the UW main campus. For additional information about costs, please check assays & fees.
