Advancing Metabolomics Using High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry

“Metabolomics is the study of small molecules within a biological system. Its popularity has soared in the past decade thanks to its potential to provide information on the overall physiological state of an organism.

Metabolomics techniques would not be possible without high-sensitivity, high-resolution techniques such as mass spectrometry. High-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) provides the highest degree of structural information.”
