NMR Spectroscopy: Metabolic Fingerprinting to Profiling
NMR spectroscopy is the leading technology used for measuring metabolite levels. It is an approach that can be applied to solid as well as liquid samples which are either in vitro or in vivo. Two strategies for analysis of NMR metabolic data are the traditional ‘fingerprinting’ based on intact NMR spectrum. The other is for analysis of NMR data .i.e. ‘Profiling’ which uses computational methods for obtaining the list of metabolites and their concentration.
