People do Amazing Things with Our Lipids!

This week in research:  

Researchers from Northwest University (Xi’an, Shaanxi, China) used numerous lipid analytical standards from Avanti in a serum lipidomic analysis using UPLC-QTOF/HDMS to study lipid metabolism in chronic kidney disease (CKD). This interesting work identifies profound changes in lipid metabolites in individuals with CKD, with significant alterations in 113 of the 126 identified lipid species when compared with healthy control patients. This comprehensive UPLC-HDMS-based lipidomics technique provides a promising approach to identify novel alterations in lipid metabolism and biomarkers of various states of human disease.

Avanti’s LIPID MAPS MS & Lipidomix® standards are the perfect complement to your next lipidomic analysis!
