LC/MS/MS Method Package for Cell Culture Profiling Ver. 2
Simultaneous Analysis Conditions for 125 Compounds
This Method Package enables the analysis of 125 compounds in under 20 minutes per sample. Performing analysis separately for each compound group such as amino acids and vitamins makes profiling of cell culture components very laborious, but with this method package a large number of culture medium components and secreted metabolites can be analyzed simultaneously.
Compared to the previous version, several metabolites derived from amino acids, nucleic acids and the TCA cycle have been added, allowing even more comprehensive profiling information to be gathered.
Optimized Method for Culture Medium Analysis
Pre-set analysis conditions make full use of triple quadrupole MS capabilities for analyzing trace components such as vitamins. On the other hand, analysis conditions are adjusted so that high-concentration components such as glucose or amino acids are not saturated. It is possible to measure a variety of culture medium components from the same vial.
Note: A dilution series must be created for accurate quantification.
Analysis can be started without the need for time-consuming preparations such as optimization of MS parameters for each compound or careful consideration of LC/MS/MS analysis conditions.
Excellent Data Analysis Functionality
Using the Multiomics Analysis Package, it is easy and straightforward to compare changes in compound quantities on a bar graph, display changes over time on a line chart, etc.
It also includes easy-to-implement functions for correlation analysis, volcano plots, and more, significantly reducing the time required for bottleneck processes such as data analysis and visualization. The whole workflow from measurement to data analysis becomes smoother and more efficient.
Data Analysis Example
Data obtained with the method package can be inserted on the included metabolic map. It is then simple to compare compound quantities on a bar graph or display changes over time on a line graph.
Tools for Data Analysis
The data analysis software in this Method Package is developed based on tools (gadgets) that have been released on the GARUDA™ open research platform, which is mainly managed by The Systems Biology Institute, Japan (SBI).
Data Analysis Tools Used in Method Package
A tool that combines a t-test (statistically significant difference) and a fold analysis (Example: Difference in mean value such as 2 times or 1/2) to visualize the differences between the 2 groups. The Volcano Plot gadget developed by Shimadzu is included in the package.
Tool maintained at University of Konstanz, Germany, for visualization and analysis of networks across different data sets. (GARUDA support was developed at Monash University)
Data analysis tool developed by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory that can be used for visualization of diverse metabolic pathways or data mapping and customization.
Bioinformatics tool developed by the Cytoscape Consortium, used to visualize metabolic pathways, to integrate gene expression profiles with related data, and so on. It is especially useful for analyzing networks and visualizing correlations.
