Metabolon Bile Acids, Short Chain Fatty Acids Targeted Panels

Metabolon has launched two targeted panels, Bile Acids and Short Chain Fatty Acids, that measure microbially derived metabolites to identify biomarkers for the prediction and early detection of disease in areas including oncology, neurology, liver, and gastrointestinal disease. The panels target metabolites across multiple pathways, including bile acid metabolism, sulfur metabolism, nitrogen metabolism, and vitamin B metabolism. The Bile Acids panel measures 21 metabolites and has been designed for research related to digestive, metabolic, and neurological health. The Short Chain Fatty Acids panel measures nine metabolites, which are produced in the colon by gut microbes.
