The importance of metabolomic data in functional genomic investigations is increasingly becoming evident, as is its utility in novel biomarker discovery. We demonstrate a simple approach to the screening of metabolic information that we believe will be valuable in generating metabolomic data. Laser desorption ionisation mass spectrometry on porous silicon was effective in detecting 22 of 30 metabolites...
