We are a CLIA-certified lab with over 190 publications on fatty acids. Unlike other analytical labs, we will collaborate on papers with you, providing the expertise on omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Routinely measure 24-26 different fatty acids (C10 – C24), but can measure more upon request.
  • Whole blood – liquid or dried blood spot
  • Blood cells – erythrocyte, white blood cells, platelets
  • Plasma and serum – percent composition and concentration
  • Lipid classes – Triglyceride, phospholipid, cholesterol ester, free fatty acids
  • Lipoproteins – VLDL, LDL, HDL
  • Breast milk – liquid or dried milk spot
  • Food and supplement samples
  • Tissues- Human Biopsies and Experimental Animals

Fatty acid analysis is appropriate for a variety of study designs. We have analyzed samples from epidemiological and cohort studies, randomized controlled trials, experimental and animal studies, and work with clients from nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, and academic institutions.

Why measure your Omega-3 Index?

  • Omega-3s are important for heart, brain, and joint health.
  • Most Americans have low levels of omega-3s in their blood.
  • Low levels of omega-3s are related to increased risk for fatal heart attack, depression, and possibly dementia.

Why measure your Omega-3 Index?

  • Omega-3s are important for heart, brain, and joint health.
  • Most Americans have low levels of omega-3s in their blood.
  • Low levels of omega-3s are related to increased risk for fatal heart attack, depression, and possibly dementia.
  • Blood levels of omega-3s can be improved by simple dietary changes.
  • The only way to know your blood level of omega-3s is by measuring it, with the Omega-3 Index.

Why our test?

  • Over 1,000,000 people have measured their Omega-3 Index
  • Has been used in large NIH-funded population studies
  • Uses novel “dried blood spot” technology
  • Simple and safe: Only need 1 drop of blood!
  • Hassle-free: Send dried blood spot through regular mail and receive results via email within 5 days of OmegaQuant receiving the sample.
