The new Lipidomics Resource Center

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.

Over the course of the last months, we developed a new platform: the Lipidomics Resource Center. Let us show you how it empowers your research!


What you can do

You can use the Lipidomics Resource Center to search all uploaded publications and their abstracts for authors and journals or anything else. (You can even include all worldwide available lipidomics publications on PubMed.gov!) Or, filter all uploaded publications with our in-depth tag system by dimensions like sample type or research application. Even reading the full abstract without leaving the platform is possible.

There are yet more things you can do with the Lipidomics Resource Center. Just go and play with it. Over time, we will make improvements and add new publications and features. We want you to discover the world of lipidomics research in an unprecedented way – an easy one.

Novel skin lipidomics for cosmetic and dermatological applications

Lipotype GmbH, a German Max-Planck spin-off company, launched its novel Lipotype Shotgun Skin Lipidomics Technology and offers lipid analysis services for applications such as cosmetic claim support, topical drug development, efficacy testing for dermatological pharmacology and the cosmetic industry.

High-throughput skin lipidomics with ultra-broad fully quantitative coverage
Until recently, investigating skin lipidomes was not a trivial task. On one hand, the analytical method needs to have coverage broad enough to encompass the variety of skin lipids, and a throughput allowing for statistically relevant studies. On the other hand the method should be compatible with a convenient sampling technique such as tape stripping. These prerequisites are now met in the Lipotype Shotgun Skin Lipidomics Technology platform as explained by Prof. Kai Simons, CEO of Lipotype: “We offer unprecedented throughput of hundreds of samples, absolutely quantified with broad coverage of ceramides, triglycerides and other lipids, and this is all available for samples collected by super-easy tape stripping.” The development of Lipotype Skin Lipidomics was supported by the German Central Innovation Programme for SMEs.

Applications of skin lipidomics
With tools such as Lipotype Skin Lipidomics it is now easy to investigate how the healthy skin lipidome is composed, how it changes in diseases or upon intervention with a drug or a cosmetic product. This lipidomic data can be used for cosmetic claim support, topical drug development and efficacy testing. “We are excited about new possibilities to include skin lipidomics in the product development process of cosmetics companies as well as for biomarker identification for dermatology”, says Dr. Oliver Uecke, Head of Business Development and Finance at Lipotype GmbH.

Join the lipid revolution! Lipidomics for everybody

Lipids remained in the shadow of the ongoing “omics” upheaval in biology. But this is now changing. It was never so easy for researchers from universities, research institutes and clinics to try out lipidomics. Lipotype enables researchers to integrate lipidomics in their research. Our lipid analysis start with just 150 Euros per sample, are convenient to order via webshop and deliver publication-ready results.

 

Watch the message from Prof. Kai Simons, leader of the Lipotype team: “The fats fell into disgrace.”

 

New lipid analysis packages: The CEO and founder of Lipotype Professor Kai Simons explains: “We want to enable every researcher to try out lipidomics. Thus, we introduced a very price-competitive analytical package in our service portfolio.” For just 150 Euros per sample, customers can get a comprehensive and quantitative lipid analysis of their biological samples.

Webshop for highest convenience and transparence: Today, e-commerce is helping consumers in everyday life to compare and buy products online. To facilitate its services, Lipotype has now introduced a webshop to sell its products. Dr. Oliver Uecke, Head of Business Development and Finance highlights: “The advantages will be obvious to our customers. The different service packages are grasped at a glance, prices are known from the beginning and overall this provides a convenient and transparent way of purchasing our services.”

Novel data report delivers publication-ready results: Presentation of data is key to understanding results. Lipotype introduced a novel tool called “LipotypeZoom” enabling interactive data analysis and visualization as well as generation of publication-ready figures. This service allows scientists to try out lipidomics with minimal effort. We envision Shotgun Lipidomics as a routine tool in academic research.

Lipidomics as part of advanced systems biology: Lipidomics is the large-scale investigation of amounts, structures and functions of the complete set of lipids (the lipidome) in biological systems. Lipidomics includes also interaction between lipids, as well as their interaction with proteins and other metabolites. Modern lipidomics supplies a fully quantitative description of lipidomes down to the level of individual lipid molecules. Lipidomics together with proteomics and genomics provides the “omics” foundation for advanced systems biology.

Lipotype announces introduction of new service packages and the launch of a webshop

Interview with Professor Kai Simons, CEO and founder of Lipotype regarding the introduction of new service packages and the launch of a webshop in early 2016

 

Q: Professor Simons, why lipidomics at all?

Kai Simons: One class of biomolecules that, for long, remained in the shadow of on-going omics upheaval in biology, were the lipids. The scientific community focused on DNA, RNAs and proteins since these studies promised a shortcut to mechanistic understanding of biological function and homeostasis. Within this context, why care about lipids. They were largely seen as an uninteresting heterogeneous set of molecules having few specific functions.

But this is now changing. Lipids not only form the fluid bilayer of our membranes but they interact with proteins and modulate membrane functions. Membrane lipids behave as collectives, form dynamic platforms (rafts) in cell membranes and are major players in metabolism. Therefore, lipids have to be included in our tool kit. Lipid species diversity will only be understood by including lipidomics technologies in the on-going omics (r)evolution. Until now the lipids were mostly excluded. Lipotype wants to change that!

Q: What is the vision of Lipotype?

Kai Simons: We envision Shotgun Lipidomics as a routine tool in academic research, for the development of functional foods and for clinical diagnostics. Lipidomics represents a quantitative phenotyping tool with incisive multi-parametric resolution. Personalized healthcare will be revolutionized by this new technology. Simply said, our vision and slogan is: Lipidomics for a better life!

Q: And what new does your company Lipotype offer?

Kai Simons: We want to enable every researcher to try out lipidomics. Thus, with several others, we introduced a very price-competitive package in our service portfolio of lipid analysis. With the minimum amount of 900 Euro a customer can get a basic analysis of 6 biological samples, what gives only 150 Euro per sample!

Q: What is unique about Lipotype lipid analysis services?

Kai Simons: Lipotype lipid analyses are high-throughput, with broad coverage of lipids and absolute quantitation of each lipid species. Recently, we published a joint paper with Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences, where we showed that the results generated with Lipotype technology are highly reproducible. We performed a comparison and showed that results obtained completely independently at different sites by different researchers have an average coefficient of variation of less than 15%.

The high quality standards of Lipotype are based on years of research experience from our work at Max-Planck on the role of lipids in cellular processes and on the development of lipidomics technology. We believe that the advantages of our technology are an essential prerequisite for the identification of statistical significant and clinical relevant lipid signatures, which can now be used by our customers.

Q: Lipotype will also introduce a webshop to sell its scientific services. That’s quite new for analytical services. Why did you decide to do that?

Kai Simons: Yes, we believe that introducing the webshop is totally novel in our market segment. The advantages will be obvious to our customers. The different service packages are grasped in a glance, prices are known from the beginning and in overall this provides a convenient way to purchase our services.
