Who is it for?

Our services are aimed at universities, research centers, health professionals, pharmaceutical companies, food companies, and clinical analysis laboratories that develop their activity in the field of metabolic diseases. The applications of our services are diverse:

Figure 1. Applications

We are an innovative company, specialized in nuclear magnetic resonance, and we seek to provide the best service to our customers. For this reason, we continuously seek partners for national and international projects for the investigation of new markers, analytical methods, new matrices and new treatments that promote the study, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of metabolic disorders in a more careful and accurate way. the purpose of advancing knowledge and improving the health of people.

The services offered by Biosfer Teslab are:

  • The Liposcale ® test
  • LMWM profiling: Characterization of low molecular weight metabolites in intact serum
  • Glycoprotein test in intact serum
  • Lipidomics of serum, cell cultures and tissues (both animals and humans).
  • Characterization of aqueous metabolites in cell cultures, culture media, feces, urine and both animal and human tissues

These services can range from the beginning of the study (description of objectives, dimension and characteristics of the samples, metabolic design) to the end (data processing and interpretation), obtaining useful, meaningful results that help the progress of research Ours contributors.

Biomedical Context

Cardiovascular disease

Changes in the lifestyle of developed and emerging countries favor the exponential appearance of metabolic disorders such as obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome, among others. The appearance of these disorders has drastically increased the number of cardiovascular accidents, placing cardiovascular diseases as the leading cause of death worldwide. According to the World Health Organization, in 2015 there were 17.7 million deaths related to cardiovascular diseases, which accounted for 31% of all deaths worldwide.

Traditionally, the prediction of cardiovascular risk has been based on the analysis, among others, of a basic lipid profile, associating a high concentration of cholesterol transported by LDL or a low concentration of cholesterol transported by HDL to an increased risk of suffering a cardiovascular event . However, recent studies have shown that the classic parameter to assess cardiovascular risk, LDL (or bad) cholesterol, does not explain all cases of cardiovascular disease. It is estimated that 50% of cardiovascular accidents occur in individuals with normal levels of “bad” cholesterol or LDL.

In this context, the advanced characterization of lipoproteins, glycoproteins and low molecular weight metabolites associated with risk, complemented by the lipid profile, is of great help for the diagnosis and monitoring of pathologies related to disorders of metabolism, allowing the evaluation of the health status of patients with metabolic disorders and inflammatory processes, individuals with a higher risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular accidents.
