Research

Since our founding in 2000, researchers at Phenomenome Discoveries Inc. have been using our patented technology to examine biological samples in the search for small chemicals called metabolites that are indicators of health state and health risk. Looking at all the metabolites in a sample at once is called metabolomics, and Phenomenome has spent seven years developing metabolomics methods and tools for use in our research.

Our metabolomics tools allow us to compare samples, such as blood, from people with a health condition to samples from people with optimal health. Our goal is to learn more about human health and the biochemical basis of disease, so that we can help identify health risks before disease develops.

Our internal research division includes teams focusing on discovery research, analytical method research, and informatic tool development. We also have research programs with collaborators around the world, and offer contract research solutions for commercial customers.
