Metabolomics Data Analysis Service

We offer expertise and support for the analysis of MS-data of non-targeted and targeted metabolomics studies.

Our services include all stages of the workflow of any non-targeted or targeted metabolomoics study, namely:

  • Non-targeted metabolomics studies based on LC-MS data: data pre-processing (R, MZmine software), statistical analysis (R, SIMCA software), metabolite identification (state-of-the-art machine learning software).
  • Targeted metabolomics studies based on LC-MS and GC-MS data: data pre-processing (R, MZmine), quantifications, statistical analysis (R, SPSS software).

HOW TO ORDER YOUR ANALYSIS

Step 1. First contact. Send an email to judit.morello@nms.unl.pt copying to Catarina Sequeira catarina.sequeira@nms.unl.pt, providing as much detail as possible of your study and anticipated support needs.

Step 2. Implement strategies. We will schedule a video conference to discuss your project at length, understand your goals and decide which type of service suits you.

Step 3. Proposal. We will elaborate a proposal with specific outcomes, budget and timeline. Putative outcomes: data pre-processing, statistical analysis, metabolite identification, metabolite quantification, detailed methods writing, detailed results writing with figures. The proposal needs information on how samples were treated and acquired to anticipate problems related with poor data quality.

Step 4. Agreement. An agreement will be signed based on the terms listed below.

AGREEMENT TERMS OF REFERENCE

  1. You pay 25% of the service upfront[1]. You pay the remaining 75% when the service is completed, and you receive the defined outcomes and a report.
  2. If we fail to deliver the defined outcomes at the agreed timeline, we are obliged to show you that the planned tasks were performed and that different strategies were tried to surmount the encountered problems. Reimbursements of the 25% will be performed only in case of non-compliance.
  3. You must include a reference to our services in the materials and methods of your manuscript(s).

 
 
 

[1] The budget calculation will be made based on the number of hours worked and assuming an hourly value of the PhD researchers of € 27.5 / hour. This hourly rate corresponds to € 21.72 / hour of salary plus 20% of overheads for NMS and 6.6% of revenue for the service. Typically, a standard non-targeted and targeted job lasts for 26 and 10 days respectively.
