A state-of-the-art metabolomics-based research kit has been specially designed for use with a triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometer, enabling additional laboratories to use such kits.

Biocrates Life Sciences AG (Innsbruck, Austria) introduced “AbsoluteIDQ p150,” the new edition of its well-established line of metabolomics-based research kits. The kit has been available for use with AB Sciex and Waters mass spectrometry systems, and has now been designed to also run on Thermo Scientific’s “TSQ Vantage” Triple Stage Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, enabling more research labs to harness the power of targeted metabolite quantification with a ready-to-use kit system. Combined with a robust new ion source, second-generation ion optics, and hyperbolic quadrupoles, the “TSQ Vantage” mass spectrometer delivers both higher sensitivity and lower chemical noise.

AbsoluteIDQ p150 provides extensive metabolic information from a single targeted assay, quantifying 158 metabolites using a FIA-MS/MS method. It features the proprietary “MetIDQ” software, requires minute sample volumes (10 µL), and is suitable for use with a wide range of biological samples, making it an excellent choice with a cost-effective solution to measure endogenous metabolites under quality-controlled conditions in a researcher’s own laboratory. The Biocrates AbsoluteIDQ kits have been successfully applied in many different areas, including oncology, endocrinology, diabetes, nephrology, sepsis, and CNS disorders, in both clinical and pharmaceutical research. Biocrates mass spectrometry-based, standardized metabolomic kits provide multiplexing potential and superior accuracy and precision.
