Lipid Metabolism Imaging Services

Lipid Metabolism Imaging Services

Lipids are a large class of compounds that are highly soluble in organic solvents and heterogeneous in chemical composition and structure, including fatty acids and their naturally occurring derivatives (such as esters or amines), as well as compounds related to their biosynthesis and function. Lipid metabolism imaging is an important research method in the field of lipid metabolomics. It can assist in the analysis and identification of lipids and their interacting molecules in organisms, tissues or cells, understand the structure and function of lipids, and then reveal the relationship between lipid metabolism and physiological and pathological processes of cells, organs and even the body.
