Obesity is a prime threat to human health. In daily healthcare practice, the go-to indicator of overweight and obesity is the body mass index (BMI). Now, an international team of scientists led by Lipotype introduces a revolutionary A.I. BMI approach towards personalized and precision medicine.
The Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden, a partner of the DZD, and the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus joined their forces with Lipotype GmbH and developed a new shotgun lipidomics method for the molecular profiling of brown and white adipose tissue. The results of this collaborative work have now been published in the journal ́Molecular Metabolism ́.
Technology Networks published a new introductory article on lipidomics last week. They spoke to Dr. Christian Klose about applications in the field of lipid research and to Henri Deda about LEA, the new Lipidomics Excellence Award.
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 endeavour.
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.
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.
Lipotype and Nestle Institute of Health Sciences publish paper about the Lipotype shotgun lipidomics platformOctober 6, 2015
An automated shotgun lipidomics platform for high throughput, comprehensive,
and quantitative analysis of blood plasma intact lipids
Blood plasma has gained protagonism in lipidomics studies due to its availability, uncomplicated collection and preparation, and informative readout of physiological status. At the same time, it is also technically challenging to analyze due to its complex lipid composition affected by many factors, which can hamper the throughput and/or lipidomics coverage.
