General description

MSMLS compounds are conveniently provided at 5μg per well, enough for multiple injections. These are high purity (>95%) compounds supplied in an economical, ready to use format. Compounds are arranged in 7 polypropylene racks. Metabolite descriptors provided with product include: Name, Parent CID, molecular formula, molecular weight, CAS, ChEBI, HMDB ID, PubChem Compound and Substance ID.

MSMLS (Mass Spectrometry Metabolite Library) is a collection of high quality small biochemical molecules used for mass spectrometry metabolomics applications and provides a broad representation of primary metabolism.


Mass Spectrometry Metabolite Library is most commonly used to provide retention times and spectra for key metabolic compounds, help optimize analytical mass spectrometry protocols and qualify and quantify mass spectrometry sensitivity and limit of detection.

Features and Benefits

Over 600 unique small molecule metabolites organized in a 96-well format

MSMLS Plate Map

The complete plate map with Name, parent CID, molecular formula, molecular weight, CAS, ChEBI, HMDB ID, PubChem Compound and Substance ID are provided with the software download.

Broad metabolite spectrum, key primary metabolites and intermediates covering key metabolic pathways, including the following classes of compounds:
  • Carboxylic acids, amino acids
  • Biogenic amines, polyamines
  • Nucleotides, coenzymes and vitamins
  • Mono- and disaccharides
  • Fatty acids, lipids, steroids and hormones


Suitable for manual and automated work flows.

Preparation Note

MSMLS compounds are conveniently provided at 5μg per well, enough for multiple injections. Compounds can either be used as standards and injected individually or a strategy may be employed to pool compounds by row to allow multiple mixtures to be analyzed per injection. For more information on MSMLS, solubilization and preparation notes please refer to the product information sheet at the top of the page.

Other Notes

MLSDiscovery software package is distributed with and is tailored to work with MSMLS. A user manual and video instructions are provided.
