Transitioning from Untargeted to Targeted Metabolomics

Transitioning from Untargeted to Targeted Metabolomics

In this short presentation, Dr. Heino Heyman, Global Field Metabolomics Manager at Metabolon, discusses different metabolomics approaches to help identify patterns within biology and the ideal way to transition from untargeted metabolomics data to a targeted approach to help further your research. Dr. Heyman provides an overview of metabolomics services provided by Metabolon including a deeper look into the importance of confidence in your data and metabolite identifications. This presentation also includes an overview of a recent case study where metabolomics was used to identify microbial metabolites that could impact autism.

In this webinar you will learn:

    • Receive a brief introduction to Metabolon’s range of metabolomic services from untargeted approaches to targeted approaches
    • Deep dive into Metabolon’s solution for lipidomics, the Complex Lipid Targeted Panel
    • Explore how targeted metabolomics was used to identify microbial metabolites that could lead to behavioral improvements in autism spectrum disorder
