Metabolomics is a comprehensive, unbiased, high-throughput scientific study and analysis of complex metabolite mixtures typical of plant extracts. The general analysis of metabolic composition requires multiple steps: sample extraction, metabolite isolation/assay/identification, automated data collection/processing/analysis and quantification.
Plant metabolomics enables the establishment of plant metabolic networks and the measurement of their responses to environmental and genetic changes, and also contributes insights into plant phenotypes to development, physiology, tissue properties, resistance, biodiversity, etc.
Targeted metabolomics provides a high-resolution tool for the identification and quantitative analysis of targeted metabolites in plants. It has the advantage of high specificity and accuracy and has been widely used to analyze and compare targeted metabolic compounds across different physiological states or developmental stages. Creative Proteomics offers a wide range of plant targeted metabolomics services covering hundreds of plant metabolites including phytohormones, carotenoids, chlorophylls, lectins, toxins and more.
The chemical composition in plants is complex, with a wide range of structures and diverse biological activities, such as nucleic acids, proteins, glycans, alkaloids, terpenoids, sterols, etc. Based on LC-MS/MS technology, phytochemical analysis can also be realized to provide technical support to solve the analysis in pharmacology (e.g. in vivo metabolic process analysis of drugs), environmental science (e.g. organic pollutant detection), food science (e.g. monitoring of various additives), agronomy (e.g. pesticide residue control, soil organic matter testing, hormone analysis), etc.
