Fatty Acid Profiling

Sidebar Image

Fatty acid profiling (also known as the analysis of fatty acid methyl esters, or FAME) determines the quality of oil seeds and processed oil by identifying and quantifying the fatty acids present in a sample.

The resulting fatty acid composition profile provides critical assistance in valuing oil seeds and processed oil for the marketplace.

Eurofins BioDiagnostics’ automated high-throughput capabilities and expert, experienced technicians deliver accurate results quickly. With all of our oil-seed and processed-oil customers, we use test results to identify quality, helping you meet expectations and make effective business decisions.
