Eicosanoid Analysis Service

Creative Proteomics has developed a reliable and reproducible method using highly sensitive LC-MS/MS method for the rapid identification and quantification of eicosanoid in different sample types, which can satisfy the needs of academic and industrial study in your lab.


Eicosanoids are a large group of biologically active unsaturated fatty acids produced by the oxidation of eicosanoid polyunsaturated fatty acids, including prostaglandin (PG), thromboxane (TX), leukotriene (LT) and lipoxins (LX). They are all derived from arachidonic acid (AA), which contains twenty carbons and has carboxyl groups.

Eicosanoid is an important inflammatory factor, which is widely present in body fluids and tissues, and regulates many physiological and pathological processes in the body. Eicosanoids play an important role in the inflammation of joints, skin and eyes, the induction of childbirth, and the intensity and duration of pain and fever. They also help to inhibit gastric acid secretion, regulate blood pressure through vasodilation or contraction, and inhibit or activate platelet aggregation and thrombosis. Eicosanoids can be synthesized in all mammalian cells except red blood cells. A small amount of eicosanoid can exert a powerful physiological effect. At the synthesis site, eicosanoids exert their local effects through receptor-mediated G protein connection signaling pathways.

Eicosanoids play a vital role in many diseases, so it is very meaningful to detect and quantify these compounds. Such compounds are produced and released quickly under various physiological and pathological stimuli, and have a small synthesis amount, poor stability, and a large number of isomers. Therefore, the separation and analysis of eicosanoids in organisms poses a greater challenge. Sensitive and specific analytical methods are needed to quantify these compounds. HPLC-MS/MS has become one of the main techniques for the quantification of eicosanoids.

Creative Proteomics is based on a highly stable, reproducible and highly sensitive separation, characterization, identification and quantitative analysis system, combined with LC-MS/MS to provide reliable, fast and cost-effective analysis services for eicosanoids.
