A probabilistic approach Bayesian Quantification for fully automated database-based identification. BQuant also automated quantification of metabolites in local regions of 1H NMR spectra. It represents the spectra as mixtures of reference profiles from a database, and infers the identities and the abundances of metabolites by Bayesian model selection. BQuant outperforms the available automated alternatives in accuracy for both identification and quantification.
