Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics

Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics is the leading lipidomics service.
Our mass spectrometry based technology empowers researchers from biotech, pharma, food industry, cosmetics and academia.

Order your lipidomics analysis, send in your samples and receive your data in as little as two weeks.

What you will get

More Than 2300 Individual Lipids
Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics technology provides you with an ultrabroad coverage of lipids. Our services identify 43 different lipid classes (e.g. phosphatidylcholines [PC]) on the level of lipid species (e.g. PC 34:0) or subspecies (e.g. PC 18:0_16:0 + fatty acid information) – in total more than 2300 individual lipids.

Rich Variety Of Sample Types
From subcellular compartments, bacteria, yeast and other microorganisms to cultured cells, skin tapes, body fluids, blood and plasma, tissues and organs: liver, brain etc. – we routinely
cover a rich variety of sample types. Still, our services require only minimal sample amounts per analysis, e.g. 1 μL of blood plasma.

Results, Ready To Be Published
We turn your samples into information. By default, you will receive raw data output (pmol and mol% data for every sample) and processed data reports with figures, ready to be published. With LipotypeZoom you can create and download custom graphs, heat maps and principal component analysis
plots. Cohort comparisons, correlations and pathway analyses can be put on top of that.

Comparable, Quantitative Data
Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics is GMP certified, robust and highly reproducible1. We use lipid class-specific internal standards in every sample to deliver unbiased and direct quantification. All of this to provide results in absolute values, the basis to compare data of different samples and experiments.

Insights In No Time
Combining cutting-edge mass spectrometry with automated sample extraction, processing and data analysis, Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics analyzes hundreds of samples per day. Our high throughput technology delivers lipidomics data and reports in 2 to 6 weeks to provide you with insights in no time.

Research Project Support
We are a worldwide unique team of lipid biologists, biochemists, mass spectrometry and bioinformatics experts and lipidomics data scientists. We want you to find the answer to your research questions. This is why we support your research project from sample preparation to results interpretation.

From Idea To Conclusion
Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics was built to increase sample throughput, reduce workload through standardization, limit sample amounts to a minimum and process data automatically. We designed our technology to make lipidomics easy and affordable from idea to conclusion an all-round carefree package.
