NMR

NMR-based analysis of body fluids

NMR spectroscopy is a powerful tool to investigate body fluids, including whole blood, plasma, serum, urine, liquor, and cerebrospinal fluid. As an example, the NMR spectrum of the urine of a child suffering from pyroglutamic aciduria is shown in the figure below. Characteristic spectral patterns indicate the presence of the metabolite 5-oxoproline in pathologically elevated concentration.
