Lipid extraction for analysis can be challenging due to their structure and composition in various biological materials. Different types of lipids, such as complex organic compounds, fats, oils, waxes, and even hormones, exist in living cell membranes. Although numerous lipid extraction methods exist today, a vast majority of them start with cell or tissue homogenization. Bead beating has been reported to be one of the most effective and rapid cell and tissue disruption methods, increasing lipid extraction efficiency at lower costs.
