The Leader in Metabolomics to Improve Health

Metabolon is the world's leading health technology company advancing metabolomics for precision medicine and every area of life sciences research. Our Precision Metabolomics™ is a powerful technology for assessing health and is delivering biomarker discoveries, innovative diagnostic tests, and ground-breaking data in genomics and population health initiatives.

Almost every factor impacting the phenotype — from genetics and the microbiome to disease and lifestyle — exerts its influence by altering metabolite levels. By producing the most accurate, comprehensive picture of the metabolome, we help answer some of biology's most challenging questions.


Metabolon is evolving precision medicine beyond genomics by applying our metabolomics-based technology to clinical uses. We provide a snapshot of an individual's current state of health to promote wellness and improve diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of diseases.

Our technology and expertise also accelerate research and product development across the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, consumer products, agriculture and nutrition industries, as well as academic and government organizations. We offer scalable, customizable metabolomics solutions across the research continuum from discovery to clinical trials.

Innovation Powered by Proprietary Technology

Many laboratories have metabolite profiling or analytical chemistry capabilities, but 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. Translating massive quantities of data into actionable information is slow, if not impossible, for most.

We developed Precision Metabolomics to overcome these "big data" challenges. With approximately 7,000 completed projects behind us, our institutional knowledge is unmatched. Building on that knowledge, we continuously improve the industry's most innovative technology to quickly unlock critical information contained within the metabolome for actionable insights.

Unmatched Experience & Expertise

Metabolon was founded in 2000 and has 200 employees, including nearly 40 PhDs from diverse backgrounds in data science, molecular biology and biochemistry, and an experienced staff of statistics, bioinformatics, healthcare, chemistry, and software development experts.

In addition, our staff has written and contributed to over 1,000 publications, including numerous peer-reviewed journals such as Cell, Nature and Science. We invite you to view our publications and other resources to learn more about our science and its many applications for promoting health.
