Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Over the last two decades, lipidomics has evolved into an 'omics' technology pari passu with benchmarking 'omics' technologies, such as genomics or proteomics. The driving force behind this development was a constant advance in mass spectrometry and related technologies. The aim of this opinion article is to give the interested reader a concise but still comprehensive overview about the technological state of the art in lipidomics, current challenges and perspectives for future development. As such, this article guides through the whole workflow of lipidomics, from sampling to data analysis. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: BBALIP_Lipidomics Opinion Articles edited by Sepp Kohlwein.
