Lipidomics, a branch of metabolomics, is a large-scale study of all lipid molecules within a biological system including fluid cell and tissue. It is well documented that lipid molecules are the main structural components of biological membranes, which play important roles in the energy storage for living cells as well as mediation of cell signalling. The comprehensive identification and precise quantification of lipid molecules is important for understanding cellular physiology and pathophysiology1. Rapid advances in high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS) technologies allow us for fast and sensitive detection of a wide variety of lipid species. One of the primary approaches undertaken in MS-based workflows is untargeted lipidomics. The untargeted lipidomics provides a powerful tool to assess medical risks, identify novel biomarkers and gain insight to molecular mechanisms of disease by analysing hundreds of lipid species in individual’s samples. The untargeted lipidomics analysis has been applied in wide fields including biomarker discovery; human disease research; clinical diagnostics; drug discovery; food safety; neonatal screening; nutrition and systems biology2. With integrated array of separation, characterization, identification and quantification experience, Creative Proteomics provides reliable, rapid and cost-effective untargeted lipidomics services for your various scientific purposes.
