Metabolomics and Mixtures

Identification and quantification of the small molecules present in a sample is at the heart of metabolomics and mixture analysis. Whether the sample is from a biological system, chemical reaction, or industrial process, NMR spectroscopy can help researchers understand what is present in their samples and how their samples differ across treatment groups. While NMR is not as sensitive as Mass Spectrometry (link to MS Metabolomics page), it often requires little-to-no front-end separation and is intrinsically quantitative. Depending on the project, NMR, mass spectrometry, or both may be the best approach to understanding your system. If you’re unsure about which platform is best for your study, submit a consultation request (link) for either platform and we’ll help you decide.
