PRESS RELEASE

SimLipid

Simlipid from Premier Biosoft International analyses lipid mass spectrometric data for characterising lipids and can annotate mass spectra with identified lipid structures and abbreviations. The software profiles lipids by matching the experimental MS spectra with its own comprehensive, robust and annotated database, consisting of nine lipid classes and 1,948 lipid species.

It retrieves lipids that correspond with the observed m/z and user-specified filter criteria. Alongside the probable lipid structure, important information such as the lipid ID, lipid abbreviation, systematic name, lipid category, lipid mass, chemical formula and other database links is also made available. Users can also look up the database using lipid abbreviation, mass, chemical composition or lipid ID.
