Abstract

A wide range of biofluids (urine, serum, plasma, saliva, etc.) as well as cellular and tissue samples can be collected and investigated in clinical metabolomic studies. The choice of sample is dependent on the clinical question being investigated with biofluids typically studied to identify biomarkers, whereas tissues and primary/immortalised cells are typically studied to investigate mechanisms associated with pathophysiological processes. Methods applied to collect samples, quench metabolism and extract samples differ between sample types from simple collect, dilute and analyse methods for urine to complex washing, quenching and biphasic extraction methods for tissues. The range of sample collection and extraction methods are discussed with sample-specific considerations highlighted. Finally, methods for imaging of cells and tissues and for in vivo metabolomic analysis will also be introduced.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 February 2017.
All research outputs
#6,148,329
of 20,781,426 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#937
of 4,630 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#122,482
of 387,311 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#129
of 664 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,781,426 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,630 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 387,311 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 664 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
