Urine Biomarker Analysis

Nightingale’s urine metabolites provide opportunities for new discoveries.

An innovative platform

Nightingale’s Urine Biomarker Analysis provides simultaneous quantification of metabolites from several metabolic pathways including microbial metabolism, fluid balance, dietary metabolites, glycolysis-related metabolites and low-molecular metabolites including amino acids, in molar concentration units as well as ratio to creatinine. We measure over 60 metabolites from a single measurement of 500 µL of urine.

From lifestyle exposures to disease onset

Urine biomarkers allow novel opportunities for numerous epidemiological study applications including discovery of biomarkers for disease onset and molecular effects of lifestyle exposures. They can help to clarify the pathophysiological mechanisms of kidney disease, diabetes, hypertension and certain cancers, as well as improve the risk prediction for common chronic diseases.

Endless scientific opportunities

Large urine sample collections can be utilised to investigate dietary effects and other environmental exposures in numerous study settings. By combining Nightingale’s metabolic biomarker analyses from urine and plasma, there is a possibility to track kidney function and overall metabolic health status.

Pricing

Our high throughput metabolomics technology allows for analyzing 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 would typically cost 70 EUR per sample, while one with several thousand samples would cost 35-50 euros per sample. To get an exact price for your samples, please contact us for a quote below.
