Background

Highlights of our unique

LIPID ANALYSIS SERVICES

for a wide range of customers and applications

Lipotype offers unique lipid analysis services from organelles, microorganisms, cultured cells to tissues and organs. The advantages are such as broad coverage of lipids (>2300 absolutely quantified lipids), little sample amount (e.g. 60.000 cells), two weeks delivery time of results, comprehensive statistical analysis and graphical presentation of data.

Lipotype Coverage

ULTRA-BROAD COVERAGE OF LIPIDS

Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics platform provides a broad coverage of membrane lipids, but also of storage lipids. Our analysis routinely covers 30 different lipid classes (e.g. TAG or PC) on the level of lipid species (e.g. TAG 54:0) or subspecies (e.g. PC 18:0/16:0, including the fatty acid information) – in total more than 2300 individual lipids.  Moreover our platform allows for the analysis of various sample types – from organelles, microorganisms, cultured cells and blood plasma to tissues and organs: muscles, liver, brain, and many others.

Full High Troughput

FULL HIGH-THROUGHPUT

Lipotype uses Shotgun Lipidomics Technology, without time consuming chromatographic separation of lipids before analysis. We utilize the advantages of cutting-edge mass spectrometry, combined with automated sample extraction, processing and data analysis. In this way our exquisitely standardized platform allows the complete analysis of 200 plasma samples per day, offering unprecedented delivery time (weeks, instead of months) for complete results and associated reports.

Absolute Quantification

ABSOLUTE QUANTIFICATION

The quantification is achieved using lipid class-specific internal standards allowing unbiased and direct quantitation of individual lipids directly from their mass spectra intensities. Therefore, we deliver results expressed in absolute and not in relative values, which provides the basis for a direct comparison of different samples and experiments.

Lipidomics with highest quality

HIGHEST QUALITY

Lipotype’s Shotgun Lipidomics Technology is highly robust and reproducible1, 2. This performance is ensured by a rigorous quality control system. The high standards of Lipotype operations are based on years of research experience on the role of lipids in cellular processes and on the development of lipidomics technology according to industry requirements.

Lipid Identification

INNOVATIVE LIPID IDENTIFICATION:
LIPOTYPEXPLORER

Lipotype uses proprietary software for lipid identification: LipotypeXplorer. With the molecular fragmentation query language it identifies lipids with high precision and without bias. LipotypeXplorer does not rely on predefined databases, which have to be curated and maintained and which might not be complete.

analyze lipid classes and fatty acid saturation

NEW LEVEL OF DATA ANALYSIS:
LIPOTYPE ZOOM

Lipotype Zoom empowers you to interpret your data. Lipidomes have an inherent structure (e.g.: lipid classes and fatty acid saturation) that is accessed by multiple layers of dynamic aggregation. Your data can be viewed and downloaded in graphs, heat maps and principle component analysis plots.

Experts in Cell biology, Bioinformatics, lipidomics

PERSONAL APPROACH

We are scientists too, and we know that with each experiment queries pop up. And as we are experts in membrane and lipid biology and chemistry, mass spectrometry, and bioinformatics originating from the world-renowned Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany, you can benefit from our experience in lipidomics and cell biology as well as bioinformatics as Lipotype offers personal consultations together with analyses.

Reasonable Prices by high-throughput

REASONABLE PRICES

Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics is a high-throughput lipid analysis. The decreased processing time and increased sample numbers together with less material used turn into a cost advantage for you. We want you to profit from our innovation by offering reasonable prices that makes lipidomics an affordable tool in your research repertoire.
