TMAO is an amine oxide that can be quantified using UHPLC-QqQ-MSMS. Quantification of Choline and Betaine is included in the standard procedure as well.
See this example.
NUMBER OF SAMPLES: 50-200 samples (analysis of fewer or more samples has to be discussed with SMC).
MATRICES: Plasma, serum, CSF, and cell cultures (other matrices have to be communicated with SMC).
SMC is an independent partner and will be mentioned in the acknowledgements if the data is published.
