The LIPIDOCEAN platform is specialised in the detailed analysis of marine lipids, in all their complexity and diversity, from the subcellular scale to the ecosystem.
This platform is the result of more than 25 years of research on marine lipids. It is a group of specialists with expertise in the analysis, chemistry and biology of marine lipids, associated with a high-performance analytical facility. One of the platform’s main advantages is the development of original efficient separation methods. These methods make it possible the analysis of marine lipids with a rare level of detail and at trace level. As the analysis of these molecules presents a real complexity, the LIPIDOCEAN platform is a relatively leading analytical structure in the field of marine lipids.
The LIPIDOCEAN makes it possible the analysis of marine organisms’ lipid composition as well as the study of the physiological mechanisms regulating this lipid composition. The biological matrices that can be analysed are varied: animals, plants, micro-organisms (bacteria, protists), sediments, seawater, co-products…
