Metabolon

A GWAS of blood metabolite patterns in identical and non-identical twins led to common, low-frequency, and rare variants influencing metabolite levels

Dian will install Metabolon's Discovery HD4 metabolomics platform in its Hangzhou laboratory, and will commercialize Metabolon's products throughout China.

The deal joins Metabolon's metabolomics expertise with InnVentis' big data and machine learning platform.

The new investment from healthcare equity firm Essex Woodlands follows a $15 million round the company closed with the same investor this summer.

The consortium is made up of Genome Profiling, Rob Knight's UCSD lab, KromaTid, Metabolon, and Orig3n, and is sponsored by a new company called Interome.

The company said it will use the proceeds to develop and commercialize its pipeline of metabolomics-based products.

The partners will collaborate to enhance Muses Labs' personalized treatment methodology for Alzheimer's disease and related cognitive conditions.

Metabolon will work with Johns Hopkins University and Tufts Medical Center to develop and clinically validate the new blood-based diagnostic.

Metabolon's test, called Quantose IR, uses insulin and three non-glycemic biomarkers to assess the risk of a patient becoming prediabetic.

Microbe and metabolite patterns in gut samples from Cheyenne and Arapaho individuals shared features with those previously reported in inflammatory bowel disease.
