Unraveling the interaction of lifestyle, microbiota, metabolism, and health

Investigations of the gut-liver, gut-heart, and gut-brain axis have become of increased interest as researchers become to understand the role of the microbiota and its effect on many organ systems. As metabolic profiles can be obtained from biofluids, metabolomics can provide information about microbiota-related processes where metagenomics studies may not be possible.

The MxP® Quant 500 includes ­microbiota-derived secondary bile acids, which have different signaling properties than primary bile acids that are synthetized by the liver.

Translate metabolomics into knowledge

Calculating and understanding metabolite sums and ratios can make your biological data interpretation easier and more comprehensive. That is why we created the MetIDQ™ software add-on tool MetaboINDICATOR™. Give your data meaningful impact and find out how metabolite sums and ratios are associated with related biochemical pathways.

MetaboINDICATOR™ is more than an additional dimension to your data analysis; it unravels the scientific context behind your data. All in one click.

Sharpen your data quality
