In recent years, the use of liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry has enabled the high-throughput pro- filing of the metabolic composition of biological samples. However, the large amount of data obtained is often diffi- cult to analyse. This paper focuses on a particular problem, that of detecting and potentially removing derivative peaks of a substance of interest. A mixture model for clustering peaks based on chromatographic peak shape correlation is presented, and comparison of this model to the behaviour of a leading mass spectrometry analysis tool is presented. Based on the results, the mixture model is shown to have better overall performance characteristics.
