MPLEx Method Protocol for Integrative Single-Sample Processing for Subsequent Proteomic, Metabolomic, and Lipidomic Analyses

The Metabolite, Protein and Lipid Extraction (MPLEx) method protocol is a robust sample processing technique applicable to a breadth of diverse sample types, including various cell cultures, environmental collections, and delicate  tissues. The MPLEx method is comprised of an adapted solvent-based method, widely applied for extracting functional characterization information from complex cellular structures containing metabolites, lipids, and protein for analysis by mass spectrometry-based qualitative and quantitative measurements.
