LipidomeDB Data Calculation Environment Has Been Updated to Process Direct-Infusion Multiple Reaction Monitoring Data

Lipids. 2018 Nov;53(11-12):1019-1020. doi: 10.1002/lipd.12111. Epub 2018 Dec 21.


LipidomeDB Data Calculation Environment (DCE), a web application for processing data from direct-infusion tandem mass spectrometer data on lipids, was described by Zhou et al. (, Lipids, 46, 879-884). The original version processed multiple precursor and/or neutral loss scans on multiple samples. A recent update to LipidomeDB DCE,, extends LipidomeDB DCE's functionality to process data acquired in multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode by direct-infusion mass spectrometry. Both the precursor-neutral loss workflow and the MRM workflow remove signals due to isotopic overlap of lipid analytes and calculation of the amount of each target lipid in comparison with internal standards.

Keywords: Lipid analysis; Lipid chemistry; Mass spectrometry (MS); Phospholipid analysis.
