Institute for Systems Biology head Leroy Hood presented vignettes from last year's pilot project, laying the groundwork for more widespread wellness-focused work.

The deal bundles together Hepregen's liver model kit with Sciex's analysis technologies.

The partners received £30,000 (about $46,000) in funding from the BBSRC to support their metabolomics data-sharing and analyses activities.

Diet Swap

Changing the fat and fiber content of people's diets affects their gut microbiome, metabolome, and colon cancer risk, researchers say.

Through unbiased and targeted metabolite testing on urine samples from thousands of individuals in the US and the UK, researchers have narrowed in on urine compounds that coincide with body mass index.

The firms will collaborate on metabolite profiling using ImaBiotech's Multimaging technology and iTeos' animal models and tissue libraries.

Under the terms of the agreement, Sciex has exclusive reseller and marketing rights to the XCMSplus software.

The partnership strengthens BioMark's capabilities in developing metabolomics-based cancer diagnostics, the firm said. 

Metabolon Raises $5M

The financing is an extension of a Series E round completed in early 2014 and brings the total amount in the round to $20 million.

The majority of the funding will be used to establish a cancer metabolomics research center on Technion's campus.
