One of the largest most diverse subset of molecules found in living systems are the lipids. This includes various fats, sterols, mono-, di- and tri-glycerides and phospholipids. While typically viewed as primarily a structural element of the cell (and subcellular) membranes, lipids are also important as a source of energy and in signaling. AkrivisBio’s Lipid Extraction Kit provides an easy, efficient method for preparing lipid extracts on a small scale from various sample types. One isolation using 1 mg of sample should recover up to 80 μg of lipid. The assay uses hexane and methanol for extracting almost all lipid types with high efficiency.
