Mass spectrometry-based multiomics

The omics disciplines emerged to investigate the compound information of an entire organism. High-throughput analytical techniques are essential to decipher the molecular code of life. Mass spectrometry evolved as major analytical tool for sensitive and fast molecular screening.

The aim of the Rampler lab is to develop and apply novel mass spectrometry-based workflows in the multiomics areas. 


  • Lipidomics, glycolipidomics, metabolomics and multiomics

  • High-resolution mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry, multidimensional separation and standardization

  • Targets: Lipids, glycolipids, metabolites, biomolecules in human plasma, stem cells, plants, tumor microenvironment
