Short-Chain Fatty Acids

Method has been developed. Service center rate application in progress.
Quantified metabolites in fecal, cecal, and intestinal matter include acetic acid, propionic acid, butyric acid, isobutyric acid, valeric acid, and isovaleric acid
Identification and quantitation of the SCFAs using GC-FID is based on the retention times and integrated peak areas of standard compounds.
Method details can be found in Hernandez et al. 2020 (PMID: 32003601).
