Fatty acids are widely present in organisms and are important components of many complex lipids (such as triglycerides, phospholipids, etc.). When cells are supplied with sufficient oxygen, they can be oxidized and decomposed into CO2 and H2O, providing a large amount of energy support for the body . Fatty acids also play an important role in signal transmission. Lipids containing polyunsaturated fatty acids can play the role of lipid rafts in the cell structure and facilitate the transfer of intracellular and extracellular substances. The number of carbon atoms in the carbon chain of short-chain fatty acids is less than 6, and is a volatile fatty acid. Medium-chain fatty acids have 6-12 carbon atoms in the carbon chain, mainly caprylic acid (C8) and capric acid (C10). Long-chain fatty acids have more than 12 carbon atoms in the carbon chain. One end of the fatty acid hydrocarbon chain is a methyl end and one end is a carboxyl end. The detection of fatty acid levels to reflect the body's lipid metabolism, sugar metabolism and endocrine function status is of great significance for exploring the pathogenesis and prevention of diseases.
Creative Proteomics provides comprehensive medium/long chain fatty acids targeted lipidomics services from lipid extraction, lipid detection and data analysis for customers in various regions and countries.
Absolute quantification: Use external standard method to quantify, and use internal standard for correction, qualitative and quantitative is more accurate.
High sensitivity: we use liquid chromatography coupled with triple quadrupole mass spectrometers for medium chain fatty acids and long chain fatty acids analysis service (Triple Quad™ 6500 LC-MS/MS System).
