An automated metabolite extraction for plasma
20 Nov 2019

Metabolites in blood exist in a state of dynamic equilibrium, making efficient sample processing and handling after blood sampling key to biologically relevant analyses. In this webinar we discuss a method for evaluating room temperature quenching, lipid removal and metabolite isolation from plasma samples and how this protocol can be automated using the Agilent Bravo Metabolomics Sample Prep Platform.

Experts, Jennifer Van Eyk, Erika J. Glaer Chair in Women's Heart Health; Director, Advanced Clinical Biosystems Research Institute, and Weston Spivia, Research Associate III, Advanced Clinical Biosystems Research Institute, Cedars Sinai will share their work and discuss the benefits of this method, including its ability to minimize post-sampling variability and its compatibility with downstream LC-MS/MS analysis of metabolites.
