This two-day course provided a hands-on approach to teach the latest techniques and tools available to perform metabolite identification. The course applied these tools on the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap mass spectrometry family. The course was targeted towards students and researchers who are actively applying metabolomics.

The course was led by experts in the field and included significant hands-on experience using both the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap instruments to perform:

  • data dependent acquisition
  • data independent acquisition
  • MS/MS and MSn data acquisition.

The course finished with a session on the tips and tricks from the experts and an opportunity to ask questions.


The course was aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who have been actively applying metabolomics for a minimum of six months. Students or researchers wanting to take the course but who did not have the recommended level of experience were to contact the course administrator for advice.

This course was free, including travel and accommodation, for PhD students and selected post-doctoral researchers funded by NERC (subject to availability).
