Lipotype published a German article about lipidomics in the LABO magazine.
With great research comes great science
We strive for scientific excellence. But all science on earth is just as good, as the research which precedes it. Which is why we have been discussing solutions to provide better access to lipidomics publications – for free, to everybody.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a multi-drug resistant bacteria, and can cause serious illnesses such as pneumonia or sepsis syndromes. The publication from TU Braunschweig shows that, when grown under unaerobic biofilm conditions, the bacterium produces less of a protein, which binds specifically to the central hub of phospholipid metabolism.
Kai Simons, founder and CEO of Lipotype, has been following the development of omic science for decades. His lifelong experience as well as his proficiency in lipids and lipidomics has led him to a detailed review.
Lipotype published in SOFW Journal about skin lipidomics to better understand skin aging
Lipidomics is the large-scale investigation of lipids in biological systems. Venturing into the analysis of large dataset, with potential thousands of lipidomes, by advanced multiparametric statistical approaches is a challenging endeavor.
Read the Technology Feature by SCIENCE about “Big data, big picture: Metabolomics meets systems biology” in which companies and scientists explain how they use metabolomics to understand system biology.
VIB’s Technology Watch team has been active for almost a decade, continuously analyzing the potential of emerging technologies and mediating researchers’ access to them. By expanding VIB’s network of technology suppliers, purchasing licenses and negotiating business partnerships, the Tech Watch team enables VIB scientists to have privileged access to cutting-edge scientific innovations. One example comes in the form of a powerful lipidomics research tool made available to VIB scientists through a collaboration with Lipotype, a Max-Planck spin-off and key service provider. Since 2015, Lipotype technology has been a crucial factor in several major breakthroughs in multiple life sciences domains.
The largest lipidomics study to date analyzing skin lipids in more than 250 skin samples has been published in “Scientific Reports” (Sadowski T. et al. “Large-scale human skin lipidomics by quantitative, high-throughput shotgun mass spectrometry.” Scientific Reports 2017, doi: 10.1038/srep43761). The study applied a novel Skin Lipidomics Technology Platform developed by Lipotype GmbH, a German Max-Planck-Institute spin-off.
