Considering the physicochemical diversity of the metabolome, untargeted metabolomics will inevitably discriminate against certain compound classes. Efforts are nevertheless made to maximize the metabolome coverage. Contrary to the main steps of a typical liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) metabolomics workflow, such as metabolite extraction, the sample reconstitution step has not been optimized for maximal metabolome coverage. This sample concentration step typically occurs after metabolite extraction, when dried samples are reconstituted in a solvent for injection on column. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of the sample reconstitution solvent composition on metabolome coverage in untargeted LC-MS metabolomics.
