Research and Development Services

At Lipid Analytical Labs, we bring our profound understanding of lipid science to
support your research and development (R&D) efforts. Our scientific expertise and state-
of-the-art facilities can accelerate your product development process and promote
innovation in your business.

The rapidly advancing industries of today, especially those in food, supplements, cosmetics, bioenergy, and pet nutrition, necessitate the continuous evolution of products through diligent R&D. Lipid analysis, particularly understanding the role and behaviour of different fatty acids, forms a cornerstone of such R&D efforts.

At Lipid Analytical Labs, we provide cutting-edge lipid analysis services as a robust foundation for your R&D activities. Whether you’re in the early stages of product concept development, testing potential enhancements to an existing product line, or investigating the reasons behind a product failure, our lipid profiling can offer invaluable insights.

Our comprehensive lipid profiling goes beyond simply identifying the types and quantities of lipids in your samples. It provides a deeper understanding of how these lipids interact with other components and how they behave under various conditions, such as changes in temperature, pH, or processing methods. Such insights can be instrumental in making informed decisions about product formulations, optimizing production processes, and ensuring product stability and safety.

For example, in the food and supplements industry, understanding the lipid profile can help you to optimize nutritional values, taste, and texture of your products. In the cosmetics industry, it can assist in improving the absorption, hydration levels, and overall performance of your products. In the bioenergy sector, a clear understanding of the fatty acid profile can help increase the efficiency of energy production.

By leveraging our advanced lipid analysis services, you’re not just buying data – you’re gaining a scientific partner in your R&D efforts, contributing towards enhanced product quality, safety, and superior performance. Our insights can fuel your innovation, giving you a competitive edge in your respective industry.
