Based on gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) technologies, Creative Proteomics provides fast and accurate qualitative and quantitative analysis of fatty acids and derivatives to meet your different needs.
Fatty acids are divided into saturated fatty acids and unsaturated fatty acids. Unsaturated fatty acids are divided into monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids according to the degree of unsaturation.
Lipids are an important substance for the body to store and supply energy, as well as an important structural component of biofilms. Different types of fatty acids are related to a variety of metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, coronary heart disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of fatty acids can promote research on related mechanisms and evaluate potential biomarkers of diseases. Changes in the interaction between the microbial flora and the host under different physiological conditions or environments may cause changes in fatty acid levels. The study of fatty acid changes in the microbial flora can also prompt relevant research information.
The fatty acids in the microbial flora can provide information on the structure of the microbial community and serve as a classification basis for identifying bacteria. It can also be used to study the nutritional status and metabolic activities of the community structure.
Food ingredients and products such as dietary supplements (such as fish oil) or drugs also contain various fatty acids. Fatty acid composition analysis can help you determine the identity and quantity of various fatty acids in these lipid products, and provide important product information.
According to the requirements of different molecular structures, Creative Proteomics provides a series of fatty acid analysis services based on GC-MS and LC-MS. In addition, we can also provide quantitative testing services for short-chain fatty acids. Our fatty acid analysis services can be applied to many industries, including biology, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, animal husbandry, food, nutrition, environment and other fields.
To detect more than 15 fatty acids, we follow the basic process shown below. At the same time, we will adjust the experimental method according to different natures of samples, since Creative Proteomics has developed multiple novel sample preparation techniques.
