Metabolon, Inc., the global leader in providing metabolomics solutions that advance a wide variety of research, diagnostic, therapeutic development, and precision medicine applications, today announced the launch of its Bile Acids and Short Chain Fatty Acids Targeted Panels that measure microbially-derived metabolites of biological significance to identify biomarkers for the prediction and early detection of disease areas, including oncology, neurology, liver, diabetes, and gastrointestinal, and gut health.
Together, this new suite of panels targets dozens of microbially-derived metabolites across multiple pathways, including bile acid metabolism, sulfur metabolism, nitrogen metabolism, and vitamin B metabolism to advance pre-clinical and clinical research efforts:
"Metabolomics is a potent tool providing a thorough understanding of a disease phenotype crucial for effective disease prevention, monitoring, and treatment," says Rohan (Ro) Hastie, Ph.D., President and CEO of Metabolon. "Metabolon is committed to advancing scientific understanding of the human microbiome and its impact on human health. Our Bile Acids and Short Chain Fatty Acids Targeted Panels address an important need for today's cutting-edge researchers and will help unlock new insights into the complex interplay between diet, gut health, and disease, paving the way for the development of more personalized, targeted therapies."
"Our world-class ISO 9001 laboratory has developed two quantitative panels to help researchers involved in oncology, liver, diabetes, and gut health. These panels will provide added coverage of metabolites beyond our Global Discovery Platform to help our customers gain rapid insights into the role of specific microbiome-related pathways in influencing human biology to ultimately get closer to understanding and combating many major diseases," said Rangaprasad (Ranga) Sarangarajan, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Metabolon.
