Lipid Species from Brain Tissue Sections Using LESA PLUS Liquid Extraction Surface Analysis PLUS LC Separation


Spatial lipid composition, distribution and regulation are very important factors for mediating lipid functionality and, when disrupted, can cause pathophysiological processes leading to cancer, obesity, atherosclerosis, and neurodegeneration. The novel LESAPLUS surface analysis approach combines the standard liquid extraction surface analysis with an additional step of a nano liquid chromatography separation. This combination is ideally suited to investigate small molecule drugs, metabolites or lipids from thin tissue sections.
