Clinical Microbiomics adds metabolomics to its portfolio with acquisition of MS-Omics to form the leading multi-omics provider for the microbiome field.
Copenhagen, October 17, 2022 – Clinical Microbiomics, a pioneering microbiome research company, today announced its acquisition of MS-Omics, a leading metabolomics provider based in Denmark.
Clinical Microbiomics is particularly known for its pioneering work on clonal-level microbiome profiling that is recognized as the most sensitive, precise, and comprehensive in the field.
With this acquisition, Clinical Microbiomics adds leading expertise in metabolite profiling from MS-Omics to further advance its systems biology platform and help researchers worldwide understand the microbiome and how to impact health and disease.
Why is this important?
Microbiome science is widely proposed as the next frontier in addressing our most urgent health challenges and organizations worldwide are exploring this potential by developing nutritional products, live-biotherapeutics, and diagnostic tests.
The microbiome impacts health via the metabolites that it produces or modifies. This includes secondary microbial metabolites, conversion of food and drugs, and human-derived metabolites such as bile acids. In fact, the microbiome is a major source of variation in the human metabolome.
This interplay is too complex to understand from the microbiome functional potential or the metabolome alone. Clinical Microbiomics is utilizing advanced bioinformatics and systems biology to integrate the two disciplines paving the way for new innovations.
Morten Danielsen, CEO at MS-Omics, commented: “This transaction is a big milestone for our companies. It is a result of a strategic dialogue where it became clear that together we would be uniquely positioned to address microbiome research questions across the field. Together, we will be in position to offer a differentiated portfolio of services, lead the way with innovative concepts designed specifically for the fast-growing microbiome field, and benefit from improved sales coverage around the world”
Earlier this month, Clinical Microbiomics announced the finalization of a EUR 10 million investment from Seventure Partners’ “Health for Life Capital™ II” fund.
Since its foundation in 2015, Clinical Microbiomics has been innovating at the forefront of microbiome science. The company is working with the world’s leading academic institutions and microbiome innovators across food, nutrition, and consumer health companies.
Importantly Clinical Microbiomics hosts the richest data-warehouse on the market with 30k+ samples linking 3M+ bacterial strains to clinical phenotypes and is offering GCP-compliant microbiome research services for clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry.
MS-Omics ApS was founded in 2014 by Morten Danielsen and Lea G. Johnsen and is a service provider of metabolite profiling and data processing. The company has since 2014 grown rapidly and is now a leading provider of metabolomics especially within microbiome related projects. MS-Omics has a large range of customers and collaboration partners in the US and all over Europe.
