PMCID: 5878833
PMID: 29628813
DOI: 10.1007/s11306-018-1352-x

[…] kept at 320 °c for 10 min. a c10–c40 n-alkane standard mixture (neochema, bodenheim, germany) was applied at the beginning for retention index calculation. all gc–ms data files were processed with amdis (version 2.71, national institute of standards and technology, gaithersburg, md, usa) and the web-based tool spectconnect (styczynski et al. ) to perform the peak picking, spectral […]

PMID: 28676804
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.00982

[…] for polar and non-polar extractions; the derivatization of extracts and gc-ms analysis followed the descriptions by . mass spectra deconvolution and metabolite identification were carried out using amdis software and a custom in-house ei-ms metabolite library. peak picking, alignment and quantification were conducted using met-idea software ()., for quantification of amino acids, derivatization […]

[…] of the data may be developed. moreover, a major challenge in the gc-ms-based analysis is the lack of suitable informatic tools specific for untargeted metabolomics. many authors still rely on amdis, notwithstanding its known problems. it is worth stressing that errors in data extraction have an equal or greater effect on the downstream data analysis. we performed our data processing […]

DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.12777.r23714

[…] from 45°c to 215°c in over 65 mins. data pre-processing was performed in the agilent masshunter suit (version 8 of qualitative workflows and profinder), metabolite detector (version 2.5), and amdis (automated mass spectral deconvolution and identification system) (version 2.72), and the accuracy of data extraction of these software tools was compared. data was further processed […]

PMID: 27897248
DOI: 10.1038/srep37976

[…] for separation. selected ion monitoring (sim) mode was chosen for the instrumental analysis. peak deconvolution and the identification and selection of the characteristic ions were performed by using amdis, leco chromatof and in-house software. the spit ratio was 10:1. the carrier gas was helium, and the flow rate was 1.2 ml/min. the injector, interface and ion source temperatures were set to 280  […]

DOI: 10.1186/s13068-018-1135-7

[…] 85–500 m/z at electron impact of 70 ev, and the temperatures of the ion source and transfer line were 230 and 280 °c, respectively., the raw data obtained from gc/ms analysis were pre-processed in automated mass spectral deconvolution and identification system (amdis) software [] for peak detection and deconvolution of mass spectra. the pre-processed data were uploaded into spectconnect […]

PMCID: 5946010
PMID: 29780370
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00857

[…] index (ri) was calculated from the added n-alkanes. metabolites were identified by comparison of ri-values and fragment masses to the golm metabolome database (; ) using the programs tagfinder and amdis (nist)., statistical analysis was performed using r version 3.3.0 (). metabolite data were normalized using sample weights and the internal standard ribitol and subsequently logarithmized. […]

PMID: 29712949
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24936-5

[…] this approach was used to circumvent limitations imposed by amdis on mass spectral library size., the raw files from the gc-ms were converted into cdf/aia format and then deconvoluted using amdis. an r-script was used to integrate peak intensities. the r-script returns a value for the retention time bin defined by amdis for a particular ion across all samples, and is thus more sensitive […]
