Custom Analysis of Single Analytes

Custom targeted metabolomics panels are powerful tools when sensitivity and flexibility are critical requirements. They can answer specific research questions, uncover actionable insights, and propel new therapeutic developments—including novel diagnostic tests—using limited samples, volatile analytes, and matrices that aren’t validated on existing commercial panels.

But if you’re interested in only a single analyte, even targeted panels provide more information than is necessary. With Metabolon’s Custom Single Analyte Assays, you can get the information you need without diluting it among the information that isn’t useful—all while preserving the same advantages offered by custom panels.

Benefits of Customization

Measuring single analytes can be difficult, particularly if they are present in low concentrations. Because sample preparation can be altered and different mass spectrometers can be leveraged to further increase sensitivity, custom single analyte assays are highly sensitive for your analyte of interest. 

Many of our customers use custom targeted panels to inform decision-making for their clinical trials. Often, single analyte assays are the final step in the process once targeted panels have narrowed the pool of candidate analytes. Like our custom targeted panels, our single analyte assays can be designed for GCP-compliance, our single analyte assays can be validated to FDA and EMA standards, and samples can be processed according to GCP/GCLP standards when the inclusion of the data into regulatory submissions is required.

Let Us Do the Hard Work for You

We work closely with our customers to develop custom panels purpose-built for their specific research needs. All custom panel projects begin with a one-on-one consultation to learn about our customer’s research program and the knowledge gaps a single analyte assay can fill. We then generate the custom assay and run the samples, delivering the same high-quality customer service and data analysis and interpretation that comes with any project performed with Metabolon.

Why Metabolon?

With our decades of experience and library of over 5,400 known metabolites, we’re fully equipped to help you develop an accurate custom single analyte assay for your research question. Only Metabolon can interrogate thousands of metabolites and integrate data across studies with unmatched competency in study design support and  the ability to derive actionable biological insights—all at the cost-effective scale necessary to support our customers’ needs.
