The dry blood spot test method uses drops of blood collected from a fingertip (see picture below), has been compared to the conventional method of lipid analysis based on withdrawal of venous blood.
This method for the analysis of fatty acids profile in the blood is approved for nutritional studies.
The fatty acids profile of blood lipids reflects dietary fat intake, and studies have shown that this profile is strongly related to health status. This is because the blood lipid profile represents the types of fats your body has to build into all cells and tissues, including cell membranes.
Thus, this new method for the analysis of fatty acids profile in the blood is applicable to nutritional studies. The 11 fatty acids are : Palmitic acid(PA), Stearic acid(SA), Oleic acid(OA), Linoleic(LA), Alpha-Linolenic acid(ALA), Gamma-linolenic acid(GLA), dihomoGamma-linolenic acid(DHGLA), Arachidonic acid(AA), Eicosapentaenoic acid(EPA), Docosapentaenoic acid(DPA), Docosahexaenoic acid(DHA).
