Cells Untargeted Lipidomics

Cells lipidomics approaches utilizing whole cell lysates of cultured cell lines or primary cells support the notion that, like the transcriptome and proteome, the cellular lipidome is actively remolded under various stimuli and physiological conditions.

Identification the lipid profiles of different cells or different states of the same cell can offer novel biomarkers for specific disease, also provide new insights for us to deeply understand the pathogenic mechanism of diseases.

Creative Proteomics provides comprehensive services from primary cells separation, lipid extraction, lipid detection and data analysis for biomedical research institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.

Our Lipidomics Services for Cell Sample

Creative Proteomics is based on the liquid-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) unbiased detection of all lipid molecules in cell samples as much as possible. We use statistical analysis to screen differential lipid molecules, discover the relative relationship between lipid metabolism changes and physiological and pathological changes, and reveal the mechanism of lipids in various life activities.

We also provide other lipid extraction methods according to your experimental needs.
