Functionalized Lipids

Functionalized lipids are commonly used to study lipid functions in biological processes. These lipids do not exist in biological systems naturally. Functionalized lipids are applicable in several areas of interest including drug delivery, transfection, reporter molecules, and structural biology. Avanti currently offers several types of functionalized lipids such as maleimide, caproylamine, succinyl, glutaryl, and biotinyl derivatives to name a few.
