|Highlights of importance and applications of instruments
To measure the molecular weight and their fragmentation of unknown compounds. Plants Metabolomics and phytochemicals identifications and quantification by injecting through UPLC or by direct insertion to MS/MS.
|Parameters/analysis that can be analysed in the instrument
Profiling and estimation of Phenolic acids, Flavonoids, Amino acids, Polyamines, Water and Fat soluble vitamins, Plant Hormones, Organic acids, Anthocyanins, Sugars etc.
|User instructions for sample preparation
Extraction should be done as per the standard published methodology for individual groups of compounds. A minimum of 2 ml of the extract can be sent for the LC-MS analysis. If solid samples (Plant samples/mushrooms only) are to be sent then a minimum of 10 g is needed.
