Product News: Shimadzu’s New LC/MS/MS Method Package for Primary Metabolites Enables Fast, Simultaneous Analysis of 55 Primary Metabolites

17 Jun 2013

Shimadzu has introduced its Method Package for Primary Metabolites, designed for the simultaneous analysis of a variety of metabolites associated with central metabolic pathways.

Unlike current techniques, such as CE/MS, derivatization followed by GC/MS, or HILIC LC/MS, Shimadzu’s new LC/MS/MS Method Package for Primary Metabolites allows simultaneous analysis of a wider range of compounds. It permits high-throughput simultaneous analysis of 55 primary metabolites in a single 20-minute injection using ion-pair chromatography coupled to LC/MS/MS analysis. The compound panel includes primary metabolites associated with the glycolytic system, the TCA cycle, and the pentose phosphate pathway as well as amino acids and nucleotides.

The LC/MS/MS Method Package for Primary Metabolites also includes biological tissue sample preparation protocols that are applicable to LC/MS/MS. In addition, the inclusion of two internal standards allows for normalization of results.
