β-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) Single Analyte Assay
Rigorous Quality Control
Metabolomics reveals biological insights otherwise unseen. For a successful metabolomics study, both small molecule discovery and the ability to dig deeper into specific biomarkers of interest are needed to uncover actionable insights that propel new therapeutic developments. A specific combination of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) technology and biochemical expertise is required to identify this biomarker of interest and develop an assay that is sensitive enough to explore it fully.
At Metabolon, we understand the crucial role BHB plays in brain function, and we’ve established best-in-class expertise in its detection. This BHB assay can be used to track this biomarker and enhance biological understanding across preclinical and clinical research.
