Comprehensive Tools for Pathway-Driven Metabolomics Mapping
The known metabolic pathway analysis network studied in metabolomics research is a highly conserved series of chemical reactions that has evolved to sustain and regulate life. Though the network may appear complex its high degree of conservation across different species means that pathway-driven metabolomics is often the most logical approach to drawing tangible biological conclusions.
Maximizing coverage of the known metabolome is challenging due to the array of chemical structures and polarities represented across the network, and often multiple approaches are required to quantify as many know metabolites as possible.
SCIEX solutions for pathway-driven metabolomics allow comprehensive approaches such as SWATH® Acquisition to be performed with a high dynamic range, maximizing overall coverage of the known metabolome, while also providing specific options to detect and quantify more challenging metabolite classes such as highly polar nucleotides and many of the lipid classes. This can be achieved via a single mass spectrometry platform allowing you to quantitatively map known metabolic pathways with higher coverage than ever before.
To achieve ultimate coverage of the known metabolome it is essential to be equipped with high performing MS instrumentation, comprehensive methods and tools that simplify the more challenging analyses. Discover how SCIEX Triple TOF® solutions are extending the reach of metabolomics researchers.
