High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) can be used to investigate the lipids of mycobacterial cell wall. Due to the variability of lipidic composition of cell wall in different species the HPLC pattern can be used for the identification at species level. The largest library of mycobacterial HPLC patterns is available here.
profiles with an esrly emergingsingle peak cluster
profiles with a late emerging peak cluster
profiles with two early emerging peak clusters
profiles with an early emerging and a late emerging cluster of peaks
profiles with two late emerging clusters of peaks
profiles with an early emerging and two late emerging cluster of poeaks
profiles with three late emerging clusters of peacks

The patterns can be searched on the basis of the species name:
or on the basis of the peaks istribution:
