From Lipid Panels To
Vitamin D

We’re experts in fatty acid analysis

We have analyzed samples from epidemiological and cohort studies, randomized controlled trials, experimental and animal studies. We also now can measure Vitamin D and standard lipid panels. We’ve also worked with clients from nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, and academic institutions. We have published more than 200 papers on fatty acids. And unlike other analytical labs, we will collaborate on papers with you, providing the expertise on fatty acids. Below are some of our specific capabilities.
Testing Provided
Routinely measure 24-26 different fatty acids (C10 – C24), but can measure more upon request. The sample types we can analyze for their fatty acid profile are:
  • Whole blood – liquid or dried blood spot
  • Blood cells – erythrocyte, white blood cells, platelets
  • Plasma and serum – percent composition and concentration
  • Lipid classes – triglyceride, phospholipid, cholesterol ester
  • Free fatty acids
  • Lipoproteins – VLDL, LDL, HDL
  • Breast milk – liquid or dried milk spot
  • Food and supplement samples
  • Tissues – human biopsies and experimental animals
  • Short chain fatty acids (C2-C6)

We now have the capability to measure plasma Vitamin D from dried blood spots or plasma. We can also now measure lipid panels, inflammatory markers, and more from plasma. Inquire below!

How We Work
How We Work

OmegaQuant has measured fatty acids in hundreds of studies with our standardized, validated methods. Why does that matter?

First, OmegaQuant, LLC is a CLIA-certified lab (#43D1105229), which means we are certified to accept human samples for diagnostic testing.

Second, you can compare blood fatty acid levels to thousands of other people and other studies. Third, although our methods are proprietary, we can provide relevant validation data upon request for potential research clients.

We can even run some validation studies specific to your work if required. Please contact us at scott@omegaquant.com for a quote or for more information.

From study design to publication
You will receive your data in an Excel file for easy analysis. The interpretation of your results, however, can be more difficult. We will work with you to provide fatty acid expertise if you would like. Below are just some of the more than 200 manuscripts we have contributed to from collaborating institutions.
