OMX | Organic Metabolomics

– An Advanced Organic Acids and Amino Acids Profile

Metabolomic Testing Offers Enhanced Insights into Patient Metabolic Status.

The OMX ™ Organic Metabolomics test from Biometrix Labs evaluates urine metabolites—including organic acids, amino acids, and other key compounds—to assist practitioners in unraveling their patient’s metabolic pathways, revealing their unique Metabolic Signature.

Using a systems-biology approach, OMX assesses biomarkers that go beyond the traditional lists of metabolites. This test enables practitioners to see a patient’s larger health picture by deciphering and connecting perturbations of key metabolic pathways and analytes, allowing for truly personalized therapeutic support.

Description

Reveal Your Metabolic Signature! 

What is Metabolomics Testing?

Metabolomics, also called comprehensive metabolic profiling, evaluates patterns of metabolites related to core biological systems, offering insight into biochemical dysfunctions that may be of concern.

Organic acids and other small molecules are intermediate compounds that can define the efficient flow of pathways and substrates such as amino acids to reveal the level of inputs, which together establish the functional status of key areas of health.

Metabolites are impacted by many factors and can change in response to diet, nutrient status, toxin exposures, exercise, physiologic demands, genetics, gut microbiome alterations, or disease stage.

Metabolic analysis can help clinicians evaluate the function of key pathways to better target support

“The metabolome is a measure of the inputs and outputs of biological pathways and, as such, is often considered more representative of the functional state of a cell than other ‘omics measures such as genomics or proteomics.” -National Institutes of Health 1

Why Choose OMX Organic Metabolomics?

Identify Metabolomic Deviations

OMX™ metabolomic testing goes beyond traditional organic acid testing. OMX characterizes metabolic phenotypes by presenting analytes in pathway categories to more easily identify metabolomic deviations that can underlie—and even precede—disease.

OMX also offers additional key markers and ratios as a standard part of the profile, including cortisol, kynurenine, microalbumin, equol, and more.

OMX™ Testing Groups Urine Analytes into Six Functionally Related Categories:

1 Metabolic Processing

2 Amino Acid & Protein Metabolism

3 Nutrition

4 Stress & Mood

5 Microbial Metabolites

6 Toxic Impacts

The front page of the OMX report provides an overview of impairment of each functional category that practitioners can use to easily review results with patients. This page includes useful charts, including a convenient “Health Target” graphic that can help patients immediately start to recognize their current metabolic signature.

The bulk of the multi-page report details every analyte detected, along with the enzymes that affect a patient’s metabolic pathways. Customized treatment recommendations are also conveniently provided on the last page of the report.

Research-Based Insight to Optimize Patient Health

The OMX metabolomics test algorithms are based on published literature. Results offer actionable information practitioners can use to develop personalized interventions.

What Patients Can Benefit from the OMX Metabolomics Test?

Understanding an individual’s metabolome, combined with their medical history and lifestyle, allows clinicians to establish a larger picture and provide support from the bottom up. Ideally, practitioners will use OMX to establish a baseline metabolic signature for healthy patients. The baseline could be used for future comparison if symptoms, disease, or illness occurs. 

OMX Provides Insight Into the Following Areas of Health:

  • Metabolic and macronutrient processing
  • Nutritional and vitamin status
  • Level and flow of amino acid
  • Detoxification
  • Mood issues
  • Gut concerns
  • Overall well-being

How Can OMX Help to Translate Metabolomics Research into Clinical Care?

Metabolomics research has generally compared sick or disease populations to healthy controls, and identified the analytes, pathways, or categories that were most impacted. The research has concentrated on several conditions, including diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, fatty-liver disease, heart disease, toxic exposure, and more.

Emerging research is beginning to characterize core metabolic signatures and increase the understanding of biochemical relationships within different conditions or diseases. The OMX metabolomics test allows clinicians to identify markers or pathways that research has identified as most associated with specific disease or core impairments.

…modern medicine will only be truly effective once it is has transitioned from reactive disease care to a framework that is predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory.” -Leroy Hood 2
