Mammalian Lipidomics Service

Mammalian, referring to mammals, constitutes a diverse and vital group within the biological classification. With characteristics such as vertebrate status and maternal nurturing, mammals hold a unique place in the animal kingdom. Their ecological roles range from predators and herbivores to seed dispersers, playing a crucial part in maintaining ecological balance. Mammals are not only indispensable in ecosystems but also hold immense significance for human life, providing food, fiber, companionship, and serving as model organisms for research and drug testing.

The field of lipidomics, focusing on the study of lipids within biological organisms, delves deep into the understanding of the composition, structure, and function of lipids in mammalian species.

Creative Proteomics provides mammalian lipidomics to accelerate your project. Our mammalian lipidomics service find applications in various research areas and purposes, including:

  • Cell Biology Research: By analyzing the lipid composition within mammalian cells, a profound understanding of cell membrane constituents is gained, crucial for deciphering cell structure and function. Our services reveal the composition of cell membranes, including lipid classes, individual lipid species, and their relative quantities.
  • Disease Biomarker Studies: Aberrations in lipid metabolism are intricately linked to diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and neurodegenerative conditions. Creative Proteomics' services aid in identifying potential biomarkers, offering valuable insights for early disease diagnosis.
  • Drug Development: Numerous drugs target pathways associated with lipid metabolism. Understanding the lipid composition within mammalian cells aids in drug development and enhances our comprehension of drug action mechanisms.
  • Diet and Nutrition Research: Dietary lipids directly impact human health. Creative Proteomics' analysis services unveil how dietary lipids influence cellular metabolism, providing guidance for dietary recommendations and research.
  • Biomedical Research: Our services find applications in various biomedical research fields, encompassing cell signaling, disease mechanisms, drug screening, and biomarker identification.

Mammalian Lipidomics Analytical Techniques

Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS)

Our Agilent 6550 Q-TOF instrument is a powerful LC-MS system that provides high-resolution mass spectrometry data. It is particularly well-suited for the analysis of a diverse range of lipids within mammalian samples. The high-resolution capabilities of this instrument enable the accurate identification and quantification of lipid species.

Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)

Thermo Fisher ISQ LT is our choice for Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry. This instrument excels in the separation and analysis of lipid compounds, particularly those requiring derivatization prior to analysis. It is highly sensitive and can provide quantitative information about lipids present in mammalian samples.

Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-MS)

For Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry, we employ the AB SCIEX TOF/TOF 5800 instrument. This technology is ideal for the analysis of a broad spectrum of lipid classes without the need for extensive sample preparation. The TOF/TOF configuration of this instrument offers exceptional sensitivity and resolution.
