Metabolite database containing currently NMR spectra of nearly 1000 compounds which are typically found as metabolites in body fluids or as components in samples from food, feed and beverage analysis
Metabolite Reference Database
The BBIOREFCODE 2 is a database containing currently spectra of nearly 1000 compounds which are typically found as metabolites in body fluids or as components in samples from food, feed and beverage analysis. In addition also a variety of typical contaminants is contained.
AMIX Software provides powerful search algorithms to identify the compounds in the database in mixture spectra. This allows the assignment of unexpected signals in spectra from screening applications and the identification of the components.
Spectra are supplied at different pH values so that experimental conditions of mixture spectra and database can be matched for database search.
The NMR Data are acquired at 600MHz under well defined conditions. Proton Spectra are supplied at eleven different pH values from pH 3 to 8. For major pH 3, 5 and 7 2D spectra (JRES, COSY, TOCSY, HSQC and HMBC) are provided as well as 13C spectra for pH 3 and 7. All compounds are supplied with 3D-structure and the spectra are fully assigned. The data generation is a continuously on-going process. Once a database is installed it can be upgraded and extended with packages of new available compounds.
New extended content
In December 2023 a considerable extension for the BBIOREFCODE was released. The database for all pH-values BBIOREFCODE now contains 950, the version for pH 3 850 and the version for pH 7 contains 890 compounds.
From December 2023 the BBIOREFCODE databases are now also available with a new structure. The license for the databases is now also available with 1 year validity with a dramatically reduced price compared to the previous 15 year version. The license for the databases now contains all compounds, also new compounds which are released at a later stage.
High Data Quality
All spectra supplied in the database are acquired at 600 MHz in aqueous solution under well defined conditions. Following the SOPs as for example used on the IVDr. The data is provided at up to 11 different pH values which allows a precise matching of the experimental conditions of the mixture spectra.
All spectra are cleaned-up (reviewable in history file, where every working step is listed) and fully assigned. They are stored in a special compressed format which reduces data volume dramatically and allows extremely fast search processes are well as simultaneous handling of large number of spectra.
Database and Usage
The current full database of the BBIOREFCODE includes 950 components. It consists of a basic package of 350, a major upgrade package of 150 and currently 5-6 minor upgrade packages of 50 compounds each. The packages can be purchased individually. Later upgrade with further packages is possible at any time.
For the usage of the database AMIX 4.0 is required, but not included in the package. Existing AMIX 4.0 installations can be used. The licenses are only available as codemeter licenses, therefore the database cannot be used with AMIX 3.x .
Typically data is supplied for eleven different pH values from pH 3 – 8 in steps of pH 0.5. 2D Data at pH 3, 5 and 7, including COSY, TOCSY, JRES, HSQC and HMBC. Solubility and or stability of certain compounds may limit the acquisition of data to a certain pH range or prevent the supply of 2D and 13C data.
