Metabolomics and lipidomics are powerful tools in systems biology that aim to understand metabolites and lipids present in samples of biological origins. Differences in the species or amounts can be used to characterize phenotypes and biological responses to diseases, genetic modifications, or nutritional and pharmacological treatments. This information allows scientists to understand how a specific organism works, or to understand the underlying mechanism of a given disease.
Waters® state-of-the-art chromatography, ionization sources, and MS technology combined with simple, scalable, yet powerful informatics solutions provide a set of tools to unlock biological information like never before, for applications including untargeted and targeted analyses, structural elucidation, MS imaging, and ambient ionization-MS applications.
