Bruker Says B.I. Quant-Ur Module of Avance IVDR Provides Precise Results for Metabolite Qauntification in Urine

Bruker ( BRKR ) said Monday its new B.I. Quant-Ur module of its successful Avance in vitro diagnostics research (iVDr) now provides precise, sensitive and fully reproducible results for the quantification of metabolites in urine using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance ( NMR ).

Urine metabolic analysis is particularly valuable and information-rich, because the metabolic pathways of a wide range of nutrients, drugs and environmental contaminants can be identified in urine, even if urine is very complex to analyze, the company said in a press release.

B.I.Quant-Ur can quantify up to 150 metabolic compounds, including disease markers and non-targeted classification against healthy newborn models, opening new areas of research in frequent diseases such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity, the company said. Additionally, the tool can be used to investigate the role which nutrition and environmental conditions play in health, including functional food efficiency and drug dosage. The IVDr profiling modules B.I.Quant are for research use only and are not released for clinical diagnostics.
