Metrics details
We developed an at-home microsampling approach that measures thousands of metabolites, lipids and proteins in small volumes of blood. Dense multi-omic sampling generates a ‘molecular movie’ that integrates with data from wearables to reveal new insights into the dynamics of human physiology.
