Lipotype (Group)

Lipotype is a spin-off of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany, established in 2012 by Prof. Dr. Kai Simons. Lipotype’s mass spectrometry-based platform can be applied to analysis of all types of biological samples and covers the analysis of more than 4200 lipids - the broadest lipidomics coverage the market has to offer. The analysis is robust and reproducible, combining reliable quality control procedures with state-of-the-art data visualization and statistical analyses. Lipotype provides lipidomics analysis services under the mission of “Lipidomics for a better life” to pharmaceutical, medical, cosmetic, and food industry companies, but also academic customers from universities and research institutions. Customers of Lipotype benefit from accessing a globally unique team of molecular biologists, biostatisticians, physicians, biochemists, mass spectrometry specialists, and bioinformatics experts – all specialized in lipids and lipid metabolism research from experimental setup to biological interpretation. This team empowers R&D facilities and labs to quickly understand the complexity of lipid metabolism on a high level without committing to significant investments in instruments and specialist training. *
