Best Practices for Sample Preparation and Lipid Extraction

Third Party Image


Lipids play a structural role in organisms, forming cells and organelles’ membranes. Due to their implication in widespread pathologies such as cancer or inflammation, they are gaining considerable interest within the scientific community.

However, the structure and composition of lipids, combined with the variety that exist in cell membranes, can make extraction for analysis challenging.
