MetaSight Diagnostics Emerges from Stealth and Announces Partnership with Maccabi's KSM Research and Innovation Center to Conduct Extensive Metabolomics Research
- Hundreds of Thousands of De-identified Serum Samples and EHRs to Support Development of Multi-Disease Liquid Biopsies
- Collaboration Advances Prospects for Early Detection and Monitoring of Multiple Indications, including Cancer, Liver, Cardiovascular, Kidney and Neurological Diseases
TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MetaSight Diagnostics, a health technology company creating liquid biopsy diagnostics for early detection of chronic and acute disease that has recently emerged from stealth, today announced their Israeli Multi-Omics Serum Screening study in collaboration with Kahn-Sagol-Maccabi (KSM), the Research and Innovation Center of Maccabi Health Services, Israel's leading HMO, has reached a new milestone: the creation of the a comprehensive metabolomics research consisting of hundreds of thousands of de-identified serum samples.
“Our propriety high-throughput and cost-effective mass spectrometry technology enabled generating the world’s largest serum molecular dataset. Integrating this molecular dataset with decades of de-identified electronic health records as well as prospective research, catalyzes the development of accurate non-invasive diagnostic tests for the early detection of a wide range of chronic and acute diseases,” said Professor Tomer Shlomi, MetaSight founder and CEO. “Our collaboration with KSM moves us another step closer to creating a cost-effective multi-disease liquid biopsy, a potential game changer for population health globally.”
The liquid biopsy market today mostly centers around oncology genomics. Despite meaningful advancements in liquid biopsies to detect cancer, the prediction and diagnosis of other potentially deadly and debilitating conditions lack accurate, accessible and affordable solutions. MetaSight aims to address this unmet need using its unique mass-spectrometry, multi-omics approach and already has developments spanning chronic liver disease, cancer, cardiovascular and neurological diseases.
"This collaboration exemplifies how KSM accelerates Israeli and international innovations that impact global health. KSM's comprehensive longitudinal data combined with its distinctive clinical and data expertise make a real difference to healthcare research and developments worldwide,” said Dr. Tal Patalon, head of KSM. "Specifically, the advancement and applicability of liquid biopsy are progressing rapidly, holding great promise for medical diagnostics. The remarkable collaboration with MetaSight in this field applies multi-omics research to chronic and common conditions facing patients throughout the world."
MetaSight is conducting this metabolomic research using liquid chromatography- mass spectrometry- (LC-MS) instruments and consumables from Thermo Fisher Scientific.
“The collaboration between Maccabi and MetaSight supported by our Thermo Scientific Vanquish liquid chromatography and Thermo Scientific Orbitrap mass spectrometry technology will enable scientific outcomes that have a meaningful and lasting impact on human health – ultimately supporting our mission to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer,” said Rosy Lee, vice president and general manager, life sciences mass spectrometry, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
