Study TitleSub-nanoliter metabolomics via mass spectrometry to characterize volume-limited samples - EBC
Study SummaryThe human metabolome provides a window into the mechanisms and biomarkers of various diseases. However, because of limited availability, many sample types are still difficult to study by metabolomic analyses. Here, we present a new mass spectrometry (MS)-based metabolomics strategy that only consumes sub-nanoliter sample volumes. The approach consists of combining a customized metabolomics workflow with a pulsed MS ion generation method, known as triboelectric nanogenerator inductive nanoelectrospray ionization (TENGi nanoESI) MS. The first set of samples tested for this approach included exhaled breath condensates (EBC) collected from cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with impaired glucose tolerance to study the metabolome changes before and after the oral glucose tolerance test.

Treatment ID:TR001526
Treatment Summary:A total of 20 EBC samples (10 for each group), each 50 µL in volume before concentration, were phenotyped. A pooled sample, which was used as a QC, was prepared by taking 5 µL from each EBC sample and mixing the aliquots together. Then, the 20 samples, together with the pooled QC sample and the blank sample (containing only ultrapure water) were lyophilized at -40 C and 100 mTorr for 24h in a VirTis Benchtop freeze-drier (LP Industries, Stone Ridge, NY, USA). Residues were then reconstituted in 9 μL of methanol/water 1:9 (v:v) with 1×10-6 M 13C-tyrosine spiked in. This resulted in a 5-fold concentration factor.
