Biocrates - the gold standard in targeted metabolomics

Metabolomics is a powerful tool to answer the multidimensional questions of biology. From just a few microliters of sample, the phenotype of an individual can be uncovered and explored. Metabolomics is key to generating high-quality and reliable data that is mandatory for today's biological research and individualised health.

Application Areas

Microbiome

Metabolomics explains microbiome host interactions on a functional level

 

Neurology

Metabolomics elucidates the functional attributes of the brain, neurodegenerative disease, and the gut-brain axis

     

Nutrition & wellbeing

Metabolomics is a key technology that confirms how food intake and eating habits influence our wellbeing and health

 

Infectious disease

Metabolomics enables scientists to understand the risks of infectious diseases and help make informed decisions for treatment

     

A million more

Metabolomics can be used to study different aspects of health and disease. Contact us to find out how metabolomics can be applied to your research

Metabolic phenotyping services

Metabolomics is the omics technology dealing with the detection, identification, and quantification of metabolites. The obtained results most closely reflect the phenotype of a biological system and are therefore increasingly acknowledged in research.
