Metabolomics with the Q Exactive

This 3-day course will introduce you to using the Q Exactive mass spectrometer in your metabolomics investigations. The course will be led by experts in the field of metabolomics and include lectures, laboratory sessions and computer workshops to provide a detailed overview of the metabolomics pipeline applying the Q Exactive mass spectrometer.

Topics covered:

  • Introduction to Metabolomics on the Q Exactive; metabolomics workflow, and case studies using the Q Exactive
  • Using the Q Exactive family of instruments in your metabolomics investigations
  • Experimental design and the importance of quality control samples
  • Sample preparation to include polar and non-polar preparation methods on urine and serum samples and the preparation of samples for profiling and targeted analyses on the Q Exactive.
  • Hands-on sample analysis for profiling and targeted studies, setting up the Vanquish UHPLC coupled to the Q Exactive MS.
  • Data processing workshop (includes instruction on combining profiling and targeted analysis)
  • Data analysis workshop (univariate and multivariate analysis)
  • Introduction to metabolite identification applying Data Dependent Analaysis and Data Independent Analysis
  • Question and answer session with a panel of experts
    • Tips and tricks
    • Problem solving
