Metabolomics, understood as the science that manages the study of compounds from the metabolism, is an essential tool for deciphering metabolic changes in disease. The experiments rely on the use of high-throughput analytical techniques such as liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-ToF MS). This hyphenation has brought positive aspects such as higher sensitivity, specificity and the extension of the metabolome coverage in a single run. The analysis of a high number of samples in a single batch is currently not always feasible due to technical and practical issues (i.e., a drop of the MS signal) which result in the MS stopping during the experiment obtaining more than a single sample batch. In this situation, careful data treatment is required to enable an accurate joint analysis of multi-batch data sets. This paper summarizes the analytical strategies in large-scale metabolomic experiments; special attention has been given to QC preparation troubleshooting and data treatment. Moreover, labeled internal standards analysis and their aim in data treatment, and data normalization procedures (intra- and inter-batch) are described. These concepts are exemplified using a cohort of 165 patients from a study in asthma.
