The Gold Standard for Omega-3 Analysis
Lipid Technologies specialises in the areas of fatty acid and lipid analysis, nutrition and biochemistry consulting.
They developed the Holman Bloodspot test which is considered to be the Gold Standard for Omega-3 Analysis.
At home blood spot Omega 3 Testing
Allowing individuals to supply a simple finger stick sample of blood that can then be tested for a complete fatty acid profile. The Holman kit includes an at-home method for obtaining a blood spot sample, which is analysed by Lipid Technologies using their precision proprietary method for high sensitivity blood-spot omega 3 analysis. This test identifies your complete fatty acid profile, specifically focusing on your omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid levels. Your total omega 3 score is generated from the measured amount of omega 3 in your bloodstream, described as a percentage figure.
Founding Partner, Dr. Ralph T Holman, was a pioneer in the field of lipid and fatty acid biochemistry.
He discovered and reported many of the fundamental aspects of fatty acid metabolism that are known today.
In 1963 he invented the term “Omega” to define the two classes of essential fatty acids and is now known as the ‘Father of Omega-3’.
Dr Holman was the first person to measure omega 3 fatty acids by alkaline isomerization and developed a world class fatty acid analysis program that served as the basis of Lipid Technologies,
