Unlock Understanding in Renal and Urological Disorders
Identify Biomarkers and Disease Mechanism
Understand Renal & Urological Disorders through Metabolomics and Lipidomics
The Metabolon Global Discovery Panel provides a high-fidelity and reproducible analysis of the current state of a biological sample to help identify biomarkers and reveal changes in key biological pathways. Global metabolomics can be applied to cultured cells, tissues, blood plasma, and serum to discover metabolic signatures of renal and urological disorders. These insights can be translated into actionable biomarkers through follow-on targeted quantitative assays. Furthermore, patients with CKD or kidney failure have altered complex lipid metabolism2 thus, accurate identification and quantification of lipid species through the Metabolon Complex Lipids Targeted Panel are essential for biomarker discovery and biological insights. Metabolon’s unmatched chemical library can identify many classes of metabolites and metabolic pathways. Global metabolomics and lipidomics offer the opportunity to profile thousands of biochemicals in an unbiased fashion to enable the discovery of novel disease mechanisms and biomarkers. Additionally, a closer look at specific pathways and metabolite classes relevant to the kidney can be achieved using Metabolon Targeted Panels such as the Creatinine Single Analyte Assay or the Indoles/Uremic Toxicity Targeted Panel.
Elucidate novel biomarkers for Renal & Urological Disorders
The economic burden of CKD is substantial,3 so understanding the underlying biology behind disease pathogenesis and identifying biomarkers can help with disease prevention, detection, and assessment of treatment efficacy. Metabolomics and lipidomics are uniquely poised to drive the needed research and development to fuel greater understanding of these conditions and drive diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities. Metabolon’s reference library contains over 5,400 metabolites, and the Metabolon Complex Lipids Targeted Panel can identify up to 1,100 individual lipid species, providing quantitative lipidomic analysis. Metabolomic and lipidomic profiling are unique and powerful tools that can provide insights into the molecular processes influencing renal and urological diseases. Metabolon’s deep experience in metabolomics and lipidomics can play a vital role in future advancements in the renal and urological field.

Metabolomics Identifies Preclinical Biomarker of Acute Renal Injury
Understanding Pediatric Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) with Metabolomics and Machine Learning
The untargeted plasma metabolomics data from this population health study represent an exciting opportunity to better understand biochemical differences based on underlying pediatric CKD causes. Identification of such differences may improve our ability to predict disease progression and associated morbidity and may identify potential therapeutic targets. This research also provides new directions for future studies of CKD.

Once you see the full value of metabolomics, the only remaining question is who does it best? While many laboratories have metabolite profiling or analytical chemistry capabilities, comprehensive metabolomics technologies are extremely rare. Accurate, unbiased metabolite identification across the entire metabolome introduces signal-to-noise challenges that very few labs are equipped to handle. Also, translating massive quantities of data into actionable information is slow, if not impossible, for most because proper interpretation takes two things that are in short supply: experience and a comprehensive database.
