Fatty Acids and Metabolites

We have an international reputation in the measurements of fatty acids and their metabolites. For simple diagnostics, you might wish to only measure the range of fatty acids in tissues such as foods, breast milk or whole blood. On the other hand, you may wish a more exhaustive analysis including measuring the fatty acids in lipid fractions of your samples such as phospholipids, triglycerides, cholesterol esters or free fatty acids.

We can also measure the newest bioactive compounds derived from fatty acids collectively called Oxylipins. The current range of compounds that we can detect include the bioactive metabolites of PUFA, such as 9,10-EpHOME, 9,10-DiHOME, 9-OXOODE, 13-HODE, 13-OXOODE, 9sHOTre, 5-HETE, 8-HETE, 9-HETE, 11-HETE, 12-HETE, 15-HETE, 4-HDHA, and 16,17-EpDPA. We are regularly adding more compounds so watch our website for news!
