Metabolon, Inc., the global leader in providing metabolomics solutions advancing a wide variety of life science research, diagnostic, therapeutic development, and precision medicine applications, today announces the launch of its new Liver Fibrosis and Kidney Function Discovery Panels.
Chronic liver disease causes two million deaths worldwide every year. Similarly, chronic kidney disease affects nearly 36 million adults in the U.S., with almost nine out of ten patients remaining unaware of their condition. Both diseases are treatable if detected early, but more research is needed to understand these ailments' underlying causes and identify better biomarkers for early detection.
As part of the Metabolon Discover portfolio of metabolomics services, Metabolon's new Liver Fibrosis and Kidney Function Discovery Panels assess multiple metabolites across diverse biological pathways associated with liver fibrosis and kidney disease, providing a greater understanding of these conditions. These new panels also leverage new visualization tools, allowing researchers to compare results across different data sets to identify and understand the impact of statistically significant changes in metabolite abundance.
"Our new Liver Fibrosis and Kidney Function Discovery Panels seek to reveal fundamental metabolic changes, thereby facilitating our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of these diseases," said Rangaprasad (Ranga) Sarangarajan, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Metabolon. "Metabolon is committed to providing insights that can ultimately lead to the creation of tools improving patient outcomes through earlier detection, better monitoring, and improved treatments."
