The Lipidomics platform

The lipidomics technical platform at the LISM provides expertise and assistance in the field of lipid analysis to all members of the laboratory. It is also open to all types of collaborative or contractualized lipid projects.

The platform allows the LISM to offer a specific workshop twice a year for PhD students on lipid extraction and analysis in various microorganisms.

The platform is equipped with an HPTLC system for lipid analysis, composed of a semi-automatic depositor, an automatic development chamber with humidity controller, a derivatizer, a vaporization chamber and a visualization system managed by the VisionCATS software that allows processing of all generated data. This equipment allows the generation of results with high reproducibility and high sensitivity.
