Mastering Metabolite Constellations. |For Precision Diagnostics.

Numares is an innovative diagnostics company. We focus on the discovery, development and commercialization of diagnostic tests, using metabolite constellations to solve unmet health care needs not addressed by single biomarker-based medicine.

Our diagnostic tests are based on the interpretation of multiple biomarkers that precisely pinpoint relevant data related to organ function. With these next-generation metabolite constellations, we develop non-invasive diagnostic tests designed to provide more precise information than the current standard tests.
