  1. The median precision (as relative coefficient of variance) is given for the 80 compounds identified by BinBase, resp. over all 334 peaks that were annotated metabolic signals by BinBase. Study 1 comprised the comparison of grinding methods, study 2 compared different solvents. Abbreviation of solvents as given in figures 3–5.
