Advanced Analysis of Organic Acids and Amino Acids
The OMX™ Organic Metabolomics test offered by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory examines urine and plasma metabolites, including organic acids, amino acids, and other key compounds. This test provides insight into your patient’s metabolic pathways and reveals their unique Metabolic Signature.
Emerging research in the field of metabolomics indicates that many diseases, conditions, and lifestyles have specific metabolic signatures—a unique pattern of metabolites mapped through metabolic pathways. The OMX test can provide insight into overall health and show metabolic trends toward type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gut dysfunction, mood disorders, detoxification, kidney function, bone loss, aging, and more.
OMX Evaluates Six Functional Categories of Health
- Metabolic Processing
- Amino Acid & Protein Metabolism
- Stress & Mood
- Microbial Metabolites
- Toxic Impacts
OMX Organic Metabolomics includes important health markers not included in other organic acid tests, including:
- Kynurenine/Tryptophan Ratio (KTR)
- Markers of Collagen Catabolism
OMX is available as a first-morning urine specimen and blood draw (patient must have fasted for the past eight  hours for blood draw), or as a single first-morning urine specimen only.
Use OMX Organic Metabolomics to reveal your patient’s distinct metabolic fingerprint so you can personalize protocols that lead to better health!
