Lipid biomarkers for RBC storage lesions could be potentially used to develop direct detection strategies for autologous blood doping. Within this study, two complementary approaches for the analysis of the RBC lipidome were developed by using high performance liquid chromatography/time-offlight mass spectrometry (HPLC/TOF-MS) and gas chromatography/time-offlight mass spectrometry (GC/TOF-MS). The applicability of both approaches was demonstrated by analyzing an exemplary set of four blood samples which were stored ex vivo for a period of 42 days.
