We here present simple and rapid methods for fast screening of yeast lipids in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. First we introduced a microwave-assisted technique for fast lipid extraction that allows the extraction of lipids within 10 min. The new method enhances extraction rate by 27 times, while maintaining product yields comparable to conventional methods (n =(More)
We present a fast and accurate method for preparation of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) using microwave-assisted derivatization of fatty acids present in yeast samples. The esterification of free/bound fatty acids to FAMEs was completed within 5 min, which is 24 times faster than with conventional heating methods. The developed method was validated in two(More)
