Chenomx Core Functions – The Profiler
In this series, we explore some of the core functions of Chenomx Suite. In this edition, we’re looking at the “Profiler” module. The Chenomx Profiler is used to identify compounds and quantify their concentrations based on data in an NMR spectrum. Key features include:
- Comprehensive pH sensitive reference compounds
- Computer assisted metabolite assignment and fitting
- Spectral binning
- Spectral overlays
- Multiple file concentration exports
- Detailed reference resources for library compounds
The ‘Profiler’ module lets you identify and quantify the contents of your mixture spectrum by comparing it to a compound library with hundreds of reference signatures.
You can obtain the concentration of compounds in your mixture by matching Chenomx’s compound signatures to the peak shapes in your spectrum.
Profiler contains a variety of tools to help you search through all available reference signatures and identify the components in your mixture.
You can use ‘Overlay Lines’ to compare your own spectra with each other. You can also give these overlaid lines an offset with the stacking feature.
Once you’re finished profiling, it’s easy to export your quantitative data for further analysis.
Profiler offers a number of binning options, including spectral binning (standard), targeted binning (based on a compound library), or residual binning (based on unmatched regions.)
Once you’ve assigned metabolites to one spectrum, you can use the batch fit tool to autofit multiple spectra with multiple metabolites.
