Ceramides Analysis Service

Ceramide (CER) is a sphingosine lipid composed of sphingosine long-chain bases and fatty acids. Ceramide is the central hub of the sphingolipid pathway, including sphingomyelin, glucosylceramide and galactosylceramide. It is mainly divided into hexose ceramide (HexCer), lactose ceramide (LacCer), sphingosine (Sph), dihydro sphingosine (DhSph) and dihydroceramide (DhCer).

Ceramide has a strong ability to associate with water molecules. It maintains skin moisture by forming a network structure in the stratum corneum. In addition, it also plays an important role in maintaining the integrity of cell membranes, cell stress response, inflammatory signal transduction and cell apoptosis.

Creative Proteomics uses liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method to identify the samples, which can effectively and accurately detect the changes in the content of ceramide.

Our Ceramides Analysis Service

Creative Proteomics use liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS) for ceramide detection.
