Neutral Lipid Analysis
Testing of edible oils, nutraceuticals oils, food products, biological materials, animal fats and more for triglycerides, triglycerides, steryl and wax esters, diglycerides and monoglycerides.
Lipids (Monoglycerides, Diglycerides, Triglycerides, Free Fatty Acids, Ethyl Esters) are extracted from samples in the presence of an internal standard. Extracts are then separated by solid-phase extraction on silica gel. The bands of interest are identified by RF comparison to appropriate standards by UV light.
Bands of interest are removed and are transmethylated. The resulting fatty acid methyl esters are then analyzed on an Agilent 6890/7890 GC-FID. Data is reported in mg/g and % by weight.
