The reliability and reproducibility of metabolomics data depends on analytical quality. However, even the highest analytical quality obtained using the most sophisticated instruments cannot substitute for poor sample quality. For example, inaccuracies and errors during sample collection from nonclinical settings, including timing and temperature variations prior to processing and freezing, negatively affect clinical study outcomes. As a result, controlling and standardizing pre-analytical factors, as well as optimizing analytical performance are the key considerations that determine the success of metabolomics projects.
In this Technique Talk, Shama Naz will reveal how to optimize experimental design and sample processing to improve the reliability and reproducibility of metabolomics data.
- Introduction to metabolomics
- Pre-analytical factors to consider for a metabolomics project
