Lipids play an important role in biology, from biofilm construction to signaling and energy storage. Metabolomics is the latest in "histology" technology, and lipidomic has evolved from metabolomics to characterize the lipid content of a given organism or system. C. elegans lipidomic analysis encompasses a variety of different possibilities, ranging from lipid droplet visualization, to total fatty acid analysis, to the analysis of complex lipids using a lipidomic approach. At CD BioSciences, we are committed to providing you with comprehensive C. elegans lipidomic analysis services. Equipped with advanced technologies and deep expertise, our talented team of experts will work closely with you so that we can provide you with groundbreaking insights in areas ranging from aging and metabolism to neurobiology and drug development.
In the post-genomic era, researchers are placing greater emphasis on the use of functional genomics tools, including transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. The purpose of genomics is to functionally analyze genes and genomes in order to study different subparts within a cell or organism. Metabolomics is an emerging field in biology, and as a branch of metabolomics, lipidomic aims to characterize lipophilic metabolites in biological systems. The analysis of lipids is important because of their role in cell membranes, energy storage and signaling. Lipidomic is categorized into targeted and untargeted lipidomic.

With the rapid development of high-throughput technologies and high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), researchers are able to explore lipid diversity and their multiple biological functions. As a result, lipidomic, a rapidly growing field, has provided insightful solutions for the exploration of metabolism in a wide range of organisms. Current techniques used for lipidomic analysis include imaging lipid deposition in C. elegans using fluorescent dyes or other techniques, analyzing lipid fractions by chromatography, and analyzing fatty acid composition by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Among these, mass spectrometry serves as a powerful tool for deciphering different lipid species and enabling relative and/or absolute quantification of lipids.
Lipidomic, a subcategory of metabolomics, helps researchers explore lipid homeostasis and network information in biological systems on a large scale, and has important applications in clinical, biomedical, pharmaceutical analysis and environmental sciences.
