Lipids are essential metabolites that have many crucial cellular functions and can provide a direct readout of cellular metabolic status. The total lipid content in a cell is called a lipidome. Lipidomics is the study of lipidomes using the principles and techniques of analytical chemistry, and emerged in 2003 as an approach to study the metabolism of the cellular lipidome.The analytical power of, and new developments in, mass spectrometry (MS) have accelerated this emerging discipline.
Lipidomics enables us to study cellular metabolism by quantifying the changes of individual lipid classes, subclasses and molecular species that reflect metabolic differences. As the pathways and networks of lipid metabolism have been extensively studied, any changes in lipid amounts can simultaneously reveal variations in several enzymatic levels, activities and/or gene expression patterns.
Creative Proteomics has extensive experience in the field of lipidomics. We are dedicated to providing cutting-edge mass spectrometry (MS)-based lipidomics services for biomedical research institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.
Untargeted Lipidomics is a discovery-based research approach focusing on detection and relative quantitation of known and unknown lipids in a given biological system. This technology is most advantageously used in comparative studies, to identify the changes in the lipid profile among two or more experimental sample groups. Creative Proteomics provides both shot-gun lipidomics and LC-MS for Untargeted Lipidomics research. As the field of lipidomics continues to mature, untargeted lipidomics is an important aspect of biomarker discovery in biological and clinical studies.Learn More
Targeted lipidomics involves the identification and quantification of defined groups of known lipids across large sample sets. Creative Proteomics offers a variety of targeted lipid analysis services in a compound class or pathway-specific manner for your lipidomics needs. We use liquid chromatography or gas chromatography hyphenated to triple quadrupole mass spectrometers for our targeted lipidomics services, to provide high-specificity, high-selectivity, and high-reproducibility detection and quantitation of hundreds of known lipids in diverse biological samples. As the field of lipidomics continues to mature, targeted lipidomics offers a promising route to disease diagnosis, therapeutic management and prognostic prediction in clinical applications.Learn More
Tissues are the primary manifestation of a very broad spectrum of diseases and are therefore one of the main pillars in clinical research and diagnostics. The investigation of morphological and molecular tissue features is the basis of generating knowledge about clinicopathological entities, diagnostics, prediction, and prognosis. Lipid composition varies significantly from tissues to tissues and even differs within the various cells of an tissue. MALDI-imaging mass spectrometry (MALDI-IMS) can reveal the characteristic distribution of several kinds of lipids in various tissues. Creative Proteomics provides a well-established solution of MALDI-Imaging.Learn More
Metabolic flux analysis (MFA), an important analytical technique, is used to examine production and consumption rates of metabolites in a biological system. Creative Proteomics offers untargeted metabolic flux and targeted metabolic flux analysis services of lipids metabolism for our customers. We has developed a novel metabolic flux analysis platform, which allows for the determination of control structure and metabolic pathway regulation network.Learn More
A detailed report will be provided at the end of the whole project, including the experiment procedure, MS/MS instrument parameter, raw data and data reports with figures, ready to be published. Creative Proteomics uses Progenesis QI (Waters) and LipidSearch (Thermo) and MS DIAL for our Lipidomics Statistics.Learn More
