Creative Proteomics Lipidomics Aids Environmental Microbial Community Studies with Phospholipid Fatty Acids Analysis Service

Lipidomics, a platform developed by Creative Proteomics, is dedicated to providing cutting-edge mass spectrometry (MS)-based lipidomic research services for biomedical institutions as well as biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies. The company today announced the launch of its Phospholipid Fatty Acids (PLFA) Analysis Service, which is designed to provide an efficient and cost-effective way for researchers to analyze the microbial community structure in various environments.


Phospholipid fatty acids are a group of biomolecules that are found in the cell membranes of all living organisms, including bacteria, fungi, and plants. The composition of these fatty acids can provide valuable information about the diversity and abundance of microbial communities in a given environment. PLFA analysis has become a popular method for characterizing microbial communities in soil, water, and other environmental samples.


“We are excited to add the PLFA analysis service to our portfolio of environmental microbiology services,” said the Chief Scientist at Creative Proteomics. “This PLFA service will allow us to help our customers better understand the structure and function of microbial communities in their environmental samples.”


The PLFA analysis service at Creative Proteomics uses gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to identify and quantify the individual fatty acids present in the phospholipid fraction of microbial cell membranes. The service provides detailed information on the total biomass and the composition of different groups of microorganisms, such as gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, fungi, and actinomycetes.


The PLFA analysis service is expected to be particularly useful in environmental microbiology research, where understanding the structure and function of microbial communities is essential to studying the impact of human activities on the environment. The service can also be used in other fields, such as food microbiology and medical microbiology, where microbial community analysis is becoming increasingly important.


“Our service is designed to be flexible and customizable to meet the specific needs of each customer. We offer a range of sample preparation and extraction methods, and can provide customized data analysis and reporting to ensure that our customers get the most out of their PLFA data. We believe that our PLFA analysis service will be a valuable tool for researchers in a wide range of fields,” he further added.
