Metabolon USA, From Discovery to the Clinic
4 June 2016
Metabolon offers a range of metabolomics service offerings that support and advance research at every stage.
Many laboratories have metabolite profiling or analytical chemistry capabilities, but none have the technology and workflow that allow Metabolon to produce the most comprehensive, high-quality and accurate metabolomics data available. And, Metabolon’s unique bioinformatics infrastructure and data interpretation experience transform that data into knowledge that you can immediately put into action.
Whether you need broad-coverage “discovery metabolomics” encompassing the entire metabolome, or targeted assays focusing on only a few pathways or metabolites, our team of experts will work with you to clearly define your goals and develop a plan to meet them. Our research service offerings are scalable and customized to fit your needs.
Discovery metabolomics is a revolutionary technology for obtaining a comprehensive picture of the metabolome and mapping metabolites to their key biochemical pathways. It helps answer a wide variety of research questions and gives crucial insight into the function of genes, the basis of disease, and how treatments work. Discovery metabolomics also identifies the associated biomarkers, making it an attractive tool for investigators across multiple applications.
Discovery metabolomics is composed of global metabolomics and global lipidomics.
•Global metabolomics services are powered by DiscoveryHD4™, the industry’s most comprehensive metabolomics platform. This automated platform quickly and accurately identifies and quantitates over 1,000 metabolites across all major classes of metabolites, with less than 5% process variability in almost any sample type. Covered classes include Amino Acids, Carbohydrates, Lipids, Nucleotides, Microbiota metabolism, Energy, Cofactors & Vitamins, Xenobiotics, and Novel Metabolites.
•Global lipidomics services comprise the complex lipid component of discovery metabolomics. Our technology is the only lipidomics method able to provide absolute quantitation, molecular species concentration and complete fatty acid composition of each covered lipid class. This unique method covers more than 1,100 molecular species across 16 lipid classes, including principle phospholipid, sphingolipid and neutral lipid classes.
Through thousands of studies, Metabolon has developed the expertise, infrastructure and bioinformatics solutions to quickly and accurately extract the key findings from discovery metabolomics data.
