Title: ZenoTOF 7600 system, hardware innovations for metabolomics workflows

Abstract: The technological advancements in the ZenoTOF 7600 system combine qualitative flexibility and quantitative power for the most demanding sample types and workflows. A hybrid collision cell is at the heart of the technological advancements in the ZenoTOF 7600 system. Previously,  QTOF mass spectrometers have suffered from duty cycle losses as a result of mating time-of-flight (TOF) analysis, a pulsed measurement technique, with the continuous beam coming from the quadrupole ion path. A series of ion-staging events and reverse-mass sequential ion release, with high-capacity ion traps, allow for duty cycle losses to be mitigated and for MS/MS sensitivity gains of 4-25x.The cell also has the ability to perform both collision induced dissociation (CID) and electron activated dissociation (EAD) experiments for high-resolution MS/MS flexibility. Electron kinetic energies can be precisely tuned from 0-25 eV without the use of chemical transfer reagents. This tunability means EAD can be performed on a wide array of analytes, from multiply-charged peptides to singly-charged small molecules.

Title: Bioanalytical solutions for advanced Metabolomic research

Abstract: The field of Metabolomics continues to expand the boundaries of its impact, looking more broadly across populations in ever-increasing study sizes and going deeper into the biochemical world of body fluids, tissues and cells. In this presentation we will highlight how Bruker is active on each of these fronts, supporting the unique needs of the specialists and multi-disciplinary teams who are leading this expansion. From small molecule metabolites to the complex world of lipids, lipoproteins, and beyond, Bruker provides customers with an unrivalled bioanalytical technology portfolio and solutions set to help them break through and innovate.

Title: Dual Metabolite + Lipid Automated Cell Sample Prep Workflow for the Bravo

Abstract: Do you need a highly reproducible, robust, and easy-to-use cell sample preparation workflow to progress your LC/MS metabolomic and lipidomic studies? In this short talk, we will describe how to take your cell sample preparation for LC/MS studies to the next level with a new, automated cell sample preparation workflow. Our workflow includes a novel room temperature cell lysis and metabolism quenching method to lyse mammalian cells and arrest cellular metabolism. The prepared cell lysates are fractionated into polar metabolites and lipids using the automated Bravo Liquid Handling Platform. Automated fractionation provides highly reproducible LC/MS metabolite and lipid data as well as the opportunity for reliable cross-correlation analysis of metabolites and lipids. Come learn how you can get the supplementary protocols to run this workflow in your lab.

Title: It’s a reasonable challenge, can we make tissue metabolomics data processing better? 

Abstract: Metabolomic data processing workflows present recognised challenges and the need to address the question of ‘how to find the highest metabolome coverage with the highest reporting confidence?’. In this presentation, we will highlight data workflows in the context of tissue metabolomics using high resolution LC-MS/MS methods applied to recent metabolite profiling studies and how different separation techniques, in house MS/MS libraries and different approaches in curating data sets can make a marked difference in the reported outcome.

Title: The STORY principle: a guide to metabolomic data interpretation

Abstract: Bridging the gap between statistical significance and biological meaning is a challenge for early-stage researchers and experienced scientists alike. For this reason, it is often overlooked when discussing the application of metabolomics in biomedical research. Traditionally, the workflow goes: plan your project, collect your samples, measure, process signals, analyze results. But statistical analysis is not the end of the road if you want to go beyond a list of significant changes and towards a better understanding of biology.  In this talk I will introduce the STORY principle, a 5-step guide to help newcomers to metabolomics exploit their datasets to the fullest. Following this guide, you can keep the momentum when working on hard to crack questions, quickly identify what you need to continue when you feel stuck, and much more. Join this much needed conversation on metabolomic data interpretation!
