Agilent, Univ. of Toronto to Create Metabolomics MRM Library

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Agilent Technologies today announced a collaboration with scientists from the University of Toronto's Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research to create a comprehensive metabolomics multiple-reaction monitoring library and methodology.

The project will use Agilent's Infinity 1290 UHPLC and 6460 triple quadrupole mass spectrometry system. Coupled with Agilent's MassHunter software, the library is anticipated to provide researchers a "robust LC-MS solution to accelerate the quantification of hundreds of metabolically important compounds for cell biology and disease research," Agilent said.

Adam Rosebrock and Amy Caudy from the Donnelly Centre are the principal investigators on the project.

Upon completion, the metabolomics MRM library will be added to Agilent's existing collection of MRM libraries addressing various applications, including pesticides, veterinary drugs, forensics, and toxicology.
