The Lipidomics Facility

The Utrecht Lipidomics Facility exists since 1998 and is part of the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences. It has strong links to the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine at the University Medical Centre Utrecht.

The facility specializes is the lipid analysis of biological samples. Current routine protocols include the analysis of these lipid classes on ion trap, q-trap or triple quad instruments.

Phospholipds (all glycerophospholipids and sphingolipids)

Neutral lipids (di- and triacylglycerols)

Sterols (cholesterol and -precursors, phytosterols, oxysterols)

Prostaglandins and leukotrienes


Fatty acids

Apart from analysis, we offer advanced lipid related bio-informatics such as assignment of lipids, principal component analysis, network generation and pathway analysis.
