What do you think when you hear the word ‘lipid’? I bet your thoughts include fat, energy, hormones, maybe cells? But what if I told you that lipids can also be considered as biomarkers? Very important biomarkers too that can be analyzed and identified using multiparametric statistical analysis!

With more and more research focusing on the culprits causing illnesses such as obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular diseases, biomarkers are becoming the centre of attention. Some of these bad guys are lipid molecules, which can be studied through lipidomics, a research field that focuses on the identification and analysis of lipids.

Sounds promising, right? Actually it doesn’t: In the past, the fact that technologies used in lipidomics were expensive, inaccurate and time consuming put a damper on this field of study, slowing down basic research and clinical diagnostics.
