Why Metabolon?


Data visualization is tiered depending on client needs. Every tier includes the Client Data Table. Clients who receive global metabolomics services may opt in to the MyMetabolon Client Portal which gives you on-demand access to your data through an always-on digital portal. This seamless access to your study results allows you to interrogate, analyze and create custom displays with your data when you want and how you want, to ensure you are getting the information you need to advance your study goals.

Quality, Usable Data for Publications

Metabolon’s client data deliverables are a suite of tools that help you review, analyze, and understand your project data. Our full deliverable includes:

  • Client Data Table (CDT) tabular data in a consistent format
  • Heat maps in a tabular format
  • Box plots in PDF format
  • Methods and QC document

Our secure deliverable format makes it easy to import study data into popular analysis and statistical tools, such as R or Python.

Pathway Enrichment

Pathway Explorer

A successful metabolomics study will generate a list of detected and identified compounds. Still, without the ability to translate this list of compounds and glean actionable insights from the metabolic pathways revealed, the investment that went into the research is wasted. The commercial software packages that support in-house metabolomics labs often leave users on their own with data interpretation.

At Metabolon, we provide a metabolic pathway analysis of this list of compounds for our clients, taking the guesswork out of the statistical analysis and results. Our team of leading scientists goes beyond the data, deciphering thousands of discreet chemical signals from small molecules and revealing biological pathways to deliver real-world, actionable insights.

Lipid Surveyor

Metabolon’s Lipid Surveyor is a suite of custom-designed data visualization and analysis software tools for lipidomic studies. Surveyor has a rich collection of capabilities, including pathway mapping, discovery, and filtering tools.

Everything in One Place

The MyMetabolon client portal—hosted securely in the cloud—allows you to access, share, and visualize your metabolomics data from the Global Discovery Panel. Within MyMetabolon, you can utilize a multi-functional data display that incorporates heat maps, charts, pathway enrichment data, and an annotated biochemical “Network View”—an interactive visual rendering of the data within the associated metabolic pathways—for each experiment.

Results can also be viewed in the context of the whole metabolome with our curated Pathway Map—an interactive visual rendering of all charted biochemical pathways. This provides a more holistic picture of your metabolomics study results and empowers a deeper understanding of biological significance.

Why Metabolon?

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.

Only Metabolon has all four core metabolomics capabilities



Ability to interrogate thousands of metabolites across diverse biochemical space, revealing new insights and opportunities



Ability to integrate the data from different studies into the same dataset, in different geographies, among different patients over time



Ability to inform on proper study design, generate high‐quality data, derive biological insights, and make actionable recommendations



Ability to process hundreds of thousands of samples quickly and cost‐efficiently to service rapidly growing demand
