Outstanding areas of medical research at the University of Alberta include diabetes, obesity, virology, heart disease, motor control and rehabilitation, protein structure and function, and transplantation.
The Lipidomics facility in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta
The University of Alberta Lipidomics Core Facility was developed to assist researchers in isolating and quantifying lipids and lipid-related molecules in experimental samples. It is a not-for-profit, pay-per-use facility, with a graduated fee schedule based on client affiliation. While most current methods have been developed for mammalian samples, we can often adapt methods for non-mammalian samples as well.
The Core uses high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC), and fast-protein liquid chromatography (FPLC) for both qualitative and quantitative analysis of lipids, lipoproteins, and other compounds (please inquire). We are currently developing high-resolution, accurate-mass methods for an Orbitrap mass spectrometer as well. We also work with the Alberta Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry Facility to share resources and expertise when required. If you are interested in analysis of compounds not listed, please contact Audric by email.
Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
