New Lipidomics Services!
The Mass Spectrometry Core Facility has established the Advanced Lipidomics Facility (ALF) through a collaboration with Dr. Judith Simcox and Dr. Dudley Lamming as a part of the UW-Madison Comprehensive Diabetes Center. This platform is based on a state-of-the-art Agilent 6546 QTOF mass spectrometer coupled with an Agilent 1290 Infinity II UHPLC system. The methods have been tested on several tissue types including plasma, intestine, skin, neuron, pancreas, liver, and adipose tissue.
Samples are submitted as frozen tissues, homogenized, extracted, and prepared for LC/MS/MS analysis. Data are collected in both positive and negative ion modes using C18-based chromatography. Data analysis is performed by the Mass Spectrometry Core Facility, with raw and processed outputs available for additional data analysis.
