The use of Liposcale® Test in Premature Cardiovascular disease

Last week, a new paper, which evaluates the use of the Liposcale® test as a predictor of premature cardiovascular disease (PRESARV-SEA Study), was published. Beyond levels of LDL-C, results reported in the article support the relevance of LDL cholesterol composition and size on premature cardiovascular disease progression and its potential as a new biomarker for… Read More »The use of Liposcale® Test in Premature Cardiovascular disease

Nuclear magnetic resonance-based metabolomic analysis in the assessment of preclinical atherosclerosis in type 1 diabetes and preeclampsia

Dr. Amor and collaborators have published a new article in the Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice journal using our plasma metabolomics analysis. The aim of the study was to evaluate the role of plasma metabolomics in atherosclerosis according to the presence of type 1 diabetes (T1D) or previous preeclampsia. They have concluded that plasma metabolomics… Read More »Nuclear magnetic resonance-based metabolomic analysis in the assessment of preclinical atherosclerosis in type 1 diabetes and preeclampsia

Use of multivariate chemometric algorithms on 1H NMR data to assess a soluble fiber (Plantago ovata husk) nutritional intervention

Abstract The study of nutritional interventions in humans is difficult to assess because the induced metabolic changes are lower than the natural biological variability between subjects. Due to its holistic approach, 1H NMR is one of the preferred technologies for this type of studies, even though it has a very low sensitivity. This work shows… Read More »Use of multivariate chemometric algorithms on 1H NMR data to assess a soluble fiber (Plantago ovata husk) nutritional intervention

Particle size measurement of lipoprotein fractions using diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy

Abstract The sizes of certain types of lipoprotein particles have been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, there is currently no gold standard technique for the determination of this parameter. Here, we propose an analytical procedure to measure lipoprotein particles sizes using diffusion-ordered nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (DOSY). The method was tested… Read More »Particle size measurement of lipoprotein fractions using diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy

Surface fitting of 2D diffusion-edited 1H NMR spectroscopy data for the characterisation of human plasma lipoproteins

Abstract Determining the concentration and size of lipoprotein complexes is very important due to their role in cardiovascular diseases and metabolic disorders. However, standard methods for lipoprotein fractionation are manual and time consuming and cannot be used as standard diagnostic tools. Because different subclasses of lipoproteins have different radii and, hence, different diffusion velocities, we… Read More »Surface fitting of 2D diffusion-edited 1H NMR spectroscopy data for the characterisation of human plasma lipoproteins

From LAB to market

Last year we published 19 scientific articles in international journals. We are a metabolomics company halfway between research and clinical practice, a scientific research group in a business environment that is committed to translational research. We carry out scientific collaborations with research groups from universities, research institutions, hospitals and companies in the biomedical sector both… Read More »From LAB to market
