About us

It is our mission to make metabolomics accessible to facilitate breakthroughs in biomedical research. With our pioneering phenotyping products and services, we help scientists and researchers gather new insights about disease prevention and personalized health.

About us

It is our vision that everyone can become aware of the connections between health and lifestyle to better understand what makes a life well-lived. It is our conviction that metabolic phenotyping is key to preventing disease, maintaining well-being and improving the quality of life.

With a pioneering spirit and game-changing thinking, biocrates delivers excellent solutions and paves the way for individual health and well-being. 

A new approach to metabolomic phenotyping

Metabolomic phenotyping has the power to transform our understanding of health and disease. Just a few microliters of sample material can tell us how a person’s genetics, behavior and environment work together to influence their health. Having the knowledge of what takes place at the cellular level, allows us to improve the overall individual wellbeing.

With decades of experience across multiple disciplines, biocrates makes standardized metabolomics accessible and quantifiable. Our phenotyping kits and services support scientists around the world to make new discoveries in research, nutrition and personalized health.
