Publication of articles in Metabolomics journal

Until 30.06.2022, participants of the 8th Conference “Metabolomics Circle 2021” can submit articles to the topical collection. After a successful review procedure, they will be published in  Metabolomics (Springer, ISSN 1573-3882, IF = 4.290). Additional information on how to submit the article and the editorial process will be provided at a later date.

Workshops

Cyclic IMS – Revolutionising metabolomics

The workshop on behalf of Waters will be delivered in English by Susan Slade, Jonathan Fox, and Jakub Ujma. It will take 1.5 hrs. More details about the content can be found here.

Taking Lipid Profiling to the next dimension using timsTOF Pro 2

The profiling of lipids from lipophilic extracts helps to get a deeper understanding in the emergence and progression of many diseases. But this application comes with several challenges like co-eluting isomeric / isobaric lipids or overlapping isotopic patterns. The acquisition of mobility-enhanced data using PASEF on timsTOF Pro 2 enhances the coverage and quality of the data – and with this the total number of compounds that can be annotated.

How easy is it to set up such a lipid profiling project and how do I process the data in MetaboScape software if I want to get standardized high-quality reporting of the annotations?

If you want to learn more about Brukers’ lipid profiling workflow, join us at our virtual demo where we demonstrate the whole workflow from the sample to result.

Registration and registration fee

Registration for the Metabolomics Circle 2021 Conference, selection of workshops and submission of abstracts for already registered participants will be carried out via an external system.

Information on the amount of fees for participants:

  • regular domestic participant: 100 PLN
