LipidQC, a Microsoft Excel-based (MSXL) visualization tool, provides a means – independent of sample preparation methods, MS instruments, and lipid-adduct – to rapidly compare lipid concentration measurements (nmol/mL) with the available consensus mean value estimates for four NIST Standard Reference Materials (SRM): SRM 1950 and the SRM 2378:1–3 series. Users can quickly compare experimental concentrations (nmol/mL) of lipid species quantified for each of the SRM materials listed against the consensus estimates and corresponding uncertainties obtained from the NIST Lipidomics Interlaboratory Comparison Exercise.
