A method is described whereby a complete analysis of individual neutral lipid and phospholipid classes in marine animal total lipid can be achieved using an latroscan TLC-FID analyser. The method involves separate analyses of two samples of total lipid in solvents designed to separate neutral and polar lipid classes, together with calibration by a composite standard similar in composition to the sample under analysis. The method does not depend on the degree of unsaturation of the fatty acids present, is rapid and compares well in accuracy with conventional combined gravimetric, colouritnetric, and densitometric procedures. © 1985.
