One of the most essential characteristics of life is metabolism and its interaction with the environment.
To understand how individuals develop over time, and the interaction between genetic and environmental factors, but also under the influence of disease, a deep insight into metabolism is essential.
Lifespin uses state-of-the-art, proprietary, nuclear spin-based physical measurement techniques (Nuclear magnetic resonance, NMR) to determine hundreds of metabolites from just a few drops of blood, for example. This is done quickly, cost-effectively and scalably, even for entire populations.
The NMR analysis methods developed by lifespin allow the simultaneous determination and quantification of all organic molecules in one sample.
At lifespin, the digitization of biological material takes place in two steps.
