We now have an in-house XCMS server. XCMS is an integrated metabolomics platform that facilitates the comparative analysis of LC-MS profiles identify significant differences between two or more sets of samples. It is also integrated with Metlin metabolite database to help detect candidate metabolites through their accurate mass measurements. Replicates can be measured for each set of samples, for example control vs. disease, and the program output helps identify molecular species which are significantly altered between the two sets. Contact Sunia if you are interested in a comparative LC-MS analysis.
