Global Discovery Panel

Metabolon’s Global Discovery Panel provides the industry’s broadest class coverage from a single sample.

What Differentiates Metabolon From The Rest?

At Metabolon, we offer the largest Level 1 library in the metabolomics industry. Our proprietary library has been built and curated over 20 years and contains over 5,400 entries. The vast majority of entries in our library are Level 1 attributing approximately 85% (~4,600 entries); however, some are Level 2 (approximately 15% accounting for around 800 entries) due to a lack of commercial standards available to qualify for Level 1. Metabolon delivers accurate, highly actionable insights for our clients’ scientific or clinical inquiries due to our unmatched library breadth and industry-leading annotation confidence levels.

Metabolon-vs-Competitors

Metabolon will report only an annotated metabolite that has been matched with an authentic standard. Other service providers claim all signals are unique compounds and will report many incorrectly.

We Offer the Largest Level 1 Library in the Metabolomics Industry

To distinguish between confidence levels in annotation accuracy, the metabolomics standards initiative (MSI) in 2007 proposed four identification levels, which were later expanded to five levels (Figure 2). Within each level, the approach to annotating metabolites is different and depends on the level of confidence required by the established standards.

Metabolomics Level 1 Validation

Services

Advancing Life Science Research & Improving Health

Metabolon Discover

Our untargeted metabolomics technology provides a high-fidelity, reproducible analysis of the current state of a biological system using relative quantitation for your metabolomics studies.

Metabolon Target

Our targeted panels and assays cover more than 1,000 metabolites and lipids across a wide range of biochemical classes, metabolic pathways, and physiological processes, and they can be customized to best fit any application.

Complex Lipids Targeted Panel

The Complex Lipids Panel is the only available panel providing both quantitative compositional analysis and complete speciation data for unparalleled insight into the lipidome.

Bile Acids Targeted Panel
Metabolon’s Bile Acids Targeted Panel measures all the major human and rodent primary and secondary bile acids as well as their glycine and taurine conjugates.
Short Chain Fatty Acids Targeted Panel

This panel provides targeted quantitation of nine short chain fatty acids in either feces or plasma samples. It is available as a Research Use Only (RUO) or Good Clinical Practice (GCP) panel and has applications in gut health, neuroscience, and COVID research.

Diabetes Research Markers Targeted Panel

The Diabetes Research Markers Targeted Panel offers absolute quantitation of 22 metabolites in a single blood sample, allowing you to quantify the levels of key analytes recognized as bioactive promoters and detractors for healthy glucose metabolism.

Applications

Advance your Research with Metabolomics

Metabolomics applies to a wide range of research, from soil health to food nutrition and preclinical research to clinical trials. Whether you’re searching for trends in a group or refining an individual’s treatment, metabolomics can help you find answers to important questions.
