Human Longevity and AMRA Partner to Provide Advanced Body Composition Profiling to HLI's Health Nucleus Clients

Linköping, Sweden and San Diego, USA [Jan 09, 2018]: AMRA, the international leader in body composition analysis, and Human Longevity Inc. (HLI), the genomics-powered health intelligence company, have announced a new agreement that will see AMRA’s body composition profiling added to HLI’s premier health assessment, the Health Nucleus experience.

The Health Nucleus integrates genomics, metabolic profiling and other clinical testing with advanced whole body and brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which now includes the body composition profiling provided by AMRA. This integrated, whole-body experience empowers patients to take control of their own health by proactively planning to stay ahead of aging and illness.

AMRA’s mission is to establish a new global standard in body composition assessment and to confront global health challenges by enhancing the evidence base needed to predict and prevent disease – a precise, cost-effective way to understand our bodies far beyond what is commonly used today. AMRA is the first company in the world to transform images from a 6-minute whole body MRI into 3D-volumetric fat and muscle measurements, while enabling market-leading accuracy and precision when assessing fat and muscle volume and distribution, as well as metabolic status.

“The HLI Health Nucleus has been positively impacting people’s lives for three years by giving them and their physicians access to some of the most comprehensive health testing available today,” said J. Craig Venter, PH.D., HLI’s CEO. “While we have been piloting AMRA’s body composition profiling for over a year, we are excited to now offer their unique modality to all our Health Nucleus clients. We believe this will provide an additional and valuable layer of powerful insight into a person’s metabolic status.”

Tommy Johansson, Chief Executive Officer of AMRA, commented, “This is an exciting day for AMRA, as we take a significant step forward in our journey to advance the cause of precision medicine and preventive care. Through our partnership with HLI, individuals will now be able to access our technology for the first time outside of medical research. We hope that our body composition profiling, combined with HLI’s cutting-edge digital health assessments, will set the standard for the future of personalized healthcare.”
