The key constituents of cellular membranes are lipids and fatty acids. This kit involves the extraction of fatty acids and lipids as liposomes from a biological sample and their resolution by thin layer chromatography (TLC).
Students will also understand the role of liposomes and their potential use of drug entrapment and delivery by viewing liposomes under a microscope.
