Overview:Almost every factor that affects health – from genetics and the microbiome to disease and lifestyle – exerts its influence by altering metabolite levels in the body or other biological system. By producing the most accurate and comprehensive picture of the collection of metabolites, known as the metabolome, from a single biological sample, Metabolon can deliver an instantaneous snapshot of the entire physiology of a living being at a discreet point in time, as well as identify changes in that system brought about the impact of disease, medical intervention, diet or the environment. This deep and comprehensive view of the metabolome provides biological insights that cannot be revealed through any other research methodology, enabling life sciences researchers and drug developers to discover answers some of biology’s most difficult questions.
Metabolon's unrivaled capability to look deep into the metabolome has enabled us to build the world’s largest library of compounds that currently includes 5,200+ total known molecules. Our proprietary Precision Metabolomics™ platform, combined with the world's most experienced metabolomics scientists, delivers biologic insights and identification of novel commercial opportunities for drug discovery and development, through clinical trials and life cycle management. Metabolon’s expertise is also accelerating research and product development for clients in academia, population health, consumer products, and nutrition industries.
Founded in 2000 and based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, Metabolon has conducted more than 10,000 independent and collaborative studies, resulting in 2,000+ publications in leading peer-reviewed journals.
