Best practices for sample preparation & lipid extraction from various sample
Lipids play a structural role in organisms, forming cells and organelles’ membranes. Not only do they store energy, but recent studies also showed their role as first and second messengers in signal transduction. As they are implicated in widespread pathologies such as cancer or inflammation, they have become a major concern for the scientific community.
Here, we present three case studies highlighting the use fulness of the Precellys® homogenizer combined with the Cryolys® cooling unit for sample preparation priorto lipid extraction.
