Comprehensive metabolic profiling


Nightingale’s platform provides a comprehensive overview of human metabolism.


Over 220 blood biomarkers

To improve risk prediction and prevention of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, Nightingale provides a metabolic profiling technology that measures blood biomarkers (molecules that indicate the presence of disease).

Our service measures over 220 blood biomarkers (far more than the handful of biomarkers currently captured by routine cholesterol tests).

Powered by NMR

Our blood biomarker analysis service integrates an analytical technology called nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Blood sample readings are combined with Nightingale’s proprietary software to quantify the different biomarkers present, providing overall concentrations of blood metabolite biomarkers (e.g. glucose, lipids and amino acids).

How our test works

Nightingale’s service is both affordable and scalable, accommodating any number of samples and providing fast delivery times. Our platform handles every step of the process, from blood sample analysis to health data delivery.

Blood sample collection

Blood sample collection

Nightingale's blood analysis service can provide biomarker measurements from any serum or plasma sample that has been collected and kept according to standard procedures for lipid testing.

Automated biomarker quantification

Automated biomarker quantification

Our fully automated biomarker quantification protocol provides superior repeatability compared to mass spectrometry methods and is coupled with certified quality control.

Metabolite concentrations

Metabolite concentrations

Blood metabolites are quantified in absolute concentrations (e.g. mmol/l) and percentages, so that biomarkers can be analyzed like any other clinical chemistry data.

Data analysis

Data analysis

Whilst Nightingale's blood biomarker analysis service produces a full set of biomarkers for every sample. Data analyses can be focused on individual biomarkers, single metabolic pathways, or a comprehensive metabolic profile.
