"Our technology has been proven for biomarker discovery through hundreds of studies with many industry-leading partners. As a result, our service business has been very successful and continues to grow," said John Ryals, chief executive at Metabolon. "Our Series C funding will help to launch our diagnostics business with exciting products in prostate cancer and insulin resistance."

Metabolon offers global biochemical profiling (metabolomic) services to researchers working in drug safety and toxicology, bioprocess optimization, consumer products and other areas which benefit from insight into complex biochemical processes and how they change in response to experimental variables.

The company's technology has been used to identify biochemical biomarkers useful for the development of a wide range of diagnostics. These markers are being applied to the development of its own proprietary diagnostic tools for insulin resistance and prostate cancer*. Metabolon also offers research tools based on these biomarkers for investigators.
