General description

The Fatty Acid Methyl Esters Standard Mixture is a metabolite mixture comprised of 13 fatty acids. Fatty acid methyl esters are dissolved in chloroform to the stated concentrations of ± 4%. This product was formulated for use as a retention marker for high-throughput GC/MS metabolomic analysis.


Used as a QC sample for GC-MS-based metabolomics studies.

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)-based metabolomics is used to identify and quantify small-molecule metabolites such as small acids, alcohols, hydroxyl acids, amino acids, sugars, fatty acids, sterols, catecholamines, drugs, and toxins.

Fatty acid methyl esters used in this standard showed a strong, consistent m/z 87 ion and molecular ions which could be used to differentiate the individual peaks.

At least two independent parameters are necessary for compound identification in metabolomics. We have compiled 2 212 electron impact mass spectra and retention indices for quadrupole and time-of-flight gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) for over 1000 primary metabolites below 550 Da...

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)-based metabolomics is ideal for identifying and quantitating small-molecule metabolites (<650 Da), including small acids, alcohols, hydroxyl acids, amino acids, sugars, fatty acids, sterols, catecholamines, drugs, and toxins, often using chemical derivatization to make these compounds sufficiently...

Many metabolomic applications use gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) under standard 70 eV electron ionization (EI) parameters. However, the abundance of molecular ions is often extremely low, impeding the calculation of elemental compositions for the identification of unknown compounds. On changing...
