Key benefits of Nightingale

Nightingale’s metabolic biomarker platform provides a broad combination of known and emerging biomarkers. It is the first and currently the only truly large-scale metabolic biomarker profiling platform that also provides multiple clinically validated biomarkers. The method has been widely applied in epidemiological studies, including some of the world’s largest biobanks. Hundreds of biomarkers analyzed from a single sample, ability to replicate your findings with global flagship cohorts, rapid translation for your findings – all this with the same affordable price point for both small and large cohorts.

Hundreds of known and new biomarkers enable comprehensible results and set the novel biomarkers in context. The biomarker data are free of batch effects and in a standard format across all the different studies we have profiled. Because of all these factors, it is straightforward for you to combine results across cohorts without the need for batch effect corrections and other tedious pre-processing steps. This allows you to get a head start in the analysis of a broad range of metabolic biomarkers in your study and take your research beyond the limits of your own cohort.
