Adaption of dried blood spots (DBS)-MS/MSALL Lipidomics to different blood matrices. (a) Scheme of DBS-Lipidomics for blood matrices; (b) Principle component analysis (PCA) of the lipidomics data from the different blood matrices; (c) The number of detectable lipid molecular species in different lipid classes; (d) Lipid class percentage distribution of total lipids in different blood matrices; (e) Reproducibility of lipid classes for different blood matrices (n = 8). c and d were run using one-way ANOVA with Dunnett’s post hoc test against DBS for each lipid class with *p-value < 0.05, **p-value < 0.01, and ***p-value < 0.001. PC, phosphatidylcholine; PE, phosphatidylethanolamine; PS, phosphatidylserine; SM, sphingomyelin; PI, phosphatidylinositol; PG, phosphatidylglycerol; PA, phosphatidic acid; TAG, triacylglyceride; DAG, diacylglyceride; Cer, ceramide; AC, acylcarnitines; Glyco, glycolipids; CoQ10, Coenzyme Q
