Founded in 1963 at the Karolinska Institute Larodan develop and manufacture research grade lipids of the highest quality.

The products include all sorts of lipids, from simple fatty acids and methyl esters to complex oxylipins, glycerides and phospholipids.

All products come with a certificate of analysis and a purity guarantee > 98% for synthetic products and >96% for natural products and are routinely used in analytical chemistry laboratories, pharmaceutical product development and cell and molecular biology research laboratories.
