Data Processing Compound DiscovererTM / Metabolomics    
Max ID. Detects and identifies all compounds in a single sample (with data dependent MS2). 
10€/profile 40€/profile

Untargeted Metabolomics. Finds and identifies the differences between samples.  Predicts elemental compositions for all compounds, identifies compounds using mzCloud (ddMS2) and ChemSpider (formula or exact mass).  Also performs similarity search and applies mzLogic algorithm to rank order ChemSpider results. Maps compounds to biological pathways using Metabolika. Applies QC-based batch normalization if QC samples are available. Calculates differential analysis (t-test or ANOVA), determines p-values, adjusted p-values, ratios, fold change, CV, etc.

*Software Data Report will be delivered.
**For methods implemented in the laboratory such as the metabolomics methods. Raw data without report, together with a copy of Xcalibur 4.1TM software are available to all users.
***All toxins are quantified by UHPLC-HRMS by following standard addition methods (see Marine Drugs, 2022).
