SPE-800-MHz NMR-MS System

SPE-800-MHz NMR-MS System Leading-edge Equipment Home

Equipment Introduction

SPE-800 MHz NMR-MS System is a hyphenated system connected by LC, NMR, and MS. It is a specialized operation equipment for metabolites/natural products which identify the structure of compounds by high sensitivity Cryogenic 800 MHz NMR after separating the mixture by LC.

Characteristics of the Equipment

  • It is used as an integrated analysis system in various fields such as metabolite identification and metabolism elucidation in metabolomics and natural product research.
  • This equipment is used to identify of the structure of compounds by high sensitivity 800 MHz NMR and UPLC-QTOF MS after separating the mixture by LC.

Representative Research Case

Metabolic changes of mouse urine and serum during progression of diabetic kidney disease

  • We observed the specific changes of urine and serum metabolites in mouse during progression of diabetic kidney disease (DKD).
  • This study presented potential biomarkers for DKD through significant alterations in metabolites during progression of DKD

(a) Multivariate analysis of serum and urine metabolite using NMR (b) Pathway of metabolites related to changes in urine


  • Metabolic biomarker and signature discovery by integrated metabolic profiling analysis
  • Identification of natural product mixture using LC-SPENMR/ MS hyphenated system
