Fatty acids

It is important to use only high quality reagents in derivatization of fatty acids to FAMEs to ensure that no artifacts are introduced during the processing of samples. Additionally, only derivatization reagents with low moisture should be used, as the esterification reaction will be hindered by the presence of water. The storage conditions of all reagents should be strictly adhered to, as some are susceptible to degradation during long-term storage.
