A simple dansylation metabolite assay (DMA) for sample normalization that is similar to the bicinchoninic acid (BCA) protein assay widely used in proteomics has been presented in the journal Analytical Chemistry. The DMA assay is performed following sample extraction to determine the total metabolite concentration, which can then be used to determine the volume of sample needed to ensure that all samples contain the same concentration of metabolites.

The RSC Environmental Chemistry Group and the RSC Analytical Division Separation Science Group will hold a joint meeting entitled "New Developments in the Analysis of Complex Environmental Matrices" in London, UK, on 6 February 2015.
