Cord Blood Biomarker Analysis

Nightingale’s cord blood analysis provides metabolites from multiple biological pathways, providing novel molecular insights.

A platform for early life-course discoveries

Nightingale’s Cord Blood Biomarker Analysis allows for the assessment of molecular effects related to both infant and maternal metabolism at birth. We provide simultaneous profiling of several metabolic pathways, including 110 metabolites from a single measurement from 100 µL of human umbilical cord serum or plasma.

Comprehensive insights

Comparable to our Blood Biomarker Analysis, the analysis enables simultaneous quantification of routine lipids and total lipids within 14 lipoprotein subclasses, inflammation, fatty acid composition, and various low-molecular metabolites including amino acids, ketone bodies and gluconeogenesis-related metabolites, in molar concentration units.

Opportunities for new discoveries

The unique viewpoint into metabolic interactions provides an opportunity to explore how perinatal metabolic biomarkers associate with known risk factors in pregnancy and throughout the life-course. Findings from comprehensive cord blood research combined with detailed Nightingale’s blood and urine profiles may reveal modifiable risk factors and targets for early life interventions. Cord blood biomarkers can help unveil and tag potential risk factors for pregnancy complications, providing potential solutions for prevention and early detection of chronic diseases associated with pregnancy.

Pricing

Our high-throughput metabolomics technology allows for analysing samples at a very competitive price for any size of sample sets. Pricing is based on sample number and sample volume: the more samples you have, the lower the price per sample is.

For example, a project with samples in the hundreds typically would cost 80€ per sample, while one with several thousand samples would cost 40-55€ per sample. To get an exact price for your samples, please contact us for a quote below.
