Metabolomics with the Q Exactive

Start Date: Monday 30th March 2020
End Date: Wednesday 1st April 2020

Location: Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham

Course Overview

This 3-day course introduces you to using the Q Exactive mass spectrometer in your metabolomics investigations. The course is led by experts in the field of metabolomics and includes lectures, laboratory sessions and computer workshops to provide a detailed overview of the metabolomics pipeline applying the Q Exactive mass spectrometer.

Topics Covered

  • Introduction to Metabolomics on the Q Exactive, the metabolomics workflow, and case studies using the Q Exactive
  • Using the Q Exactive family of instruments in your metabolomics investigations
  • Experimental design and the importance of quality control samples
  • Sample preparation including polar and non-polar preparation methods on biofluids (urine and plasma) and tissue samples
  • Preparation of samples for profiling and targeted analyses on the Q Exactive
  • Hands-on data acquisition for profiling and targeted studies, setting up the Vanquish UHPLC coupled to the Q Exactive MS
  • Data processing workshop
  • Data analysis workshop (univariate and multivariate analysis)
  • Introduction to metabolite identification applying Data Dependent Analysis
  • Question and answer session with a panel of experts
  • Tips and tricks
  • Problem solving


The course is aimed at individuals with minimal previous experience of applying LC-MS in metabolomics studies. A working knowledge of LC-MS would be advantageous.
