Clinical Research. |Valued Collaborations. For Improved Diagnostics.

Innovation matters to us.

We've developed a portfolio of several proprietary metabolite constellations. These trademarked products come from two decades of leading-edge clinical research and development, including collaborations with a number of academic institutions and and commercial organizations.

We work every day to stay at the forefront of metabolomics solutions for clinical diagnostics. Our science and technology teams continually explore new approaches for improving patient care by developing novel diagnostic tests.

Vision. |Precision Diagnostics.

We're focused on discovering in vitro diagnostic tests that improve the health and quality of life for patients with chronic diseases. 

This means identifying current challenges in diagnosing disease and monitoring its progression. It means developing tests that meet those challenges head on, with the goal of making life better for people with chronic illnesses.

Current standard tests that rely on a single biomarker often don't tell the whole diagnostic story. 


Metabolomics Innovations

Our commitment to innovation has led to novel biomarker discoveries and proprietary technologies that we use with NMR spectroscopy. With this approach, we're able to identify biomarker groups, or constellations, that yield precision diagnostic test results. 

Metabolomics, the study of biomarkers, is our business. We take our business seriously so we can discover better ways for physicians to diagnose and manage diseases.

Whether it's early detection that leads to early medical intervention to slow disease progression, or giving physicians a precision tool to know if a patient's body is rejecting an organ transplant - these are the things that keep us pushing the limits in diagnostic testing innovations.

Mission. |Improve Patient Care.

We're committed to advancing the medical diagnostics field for a number of chronic conditions, including heart, kidney and liver diseases. 

Our teams work hard to develop diagnostic tests that make a difference to physicians and clinicians caring for their patients.  

This means conducting research, our own and in collaboration with academic institutions and commercial companies, to identify and develop clinically relevant diagnostic tests. 

Competency. |Respectful collaborations.

Rigorous research provides the foundation for our product development, and we couldn't do it alone. We rely on collaborations with our academic and commercial partners to bring these diagnostic discoveries to life.

We respect and support the valuable work of our partners, not only in research and development, but also in ensuring that new diagnostic tests can easily be implemented into clinical practice. To succeed, we support our partners with concentrated strength and experience, providing:

  • Interdisciplinary team with a strong scientific and clinical background
  • Proven track of record of supporting IVD development with robust clinical studies
  • Clinical expertise and compliance acc. to ISO 13485, GCP and IVD EU regulations
  • Comprehensive study support, including set up, contracting and logistics
  • Management of regulatory affairs and ethical approvals
  • Integrity and reliability in all our commitments
  • Joint scientific dissemination

Our Successes. |Innovative Diagnostic Products.

Project: RENUM – Renal Function Assessment by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance based Metabolomics

Development and validation of an NMR based metabolite constellation determining glomerular filtration rate for a more accurate picture of the underlying kidney function.

“The Numares‘ metabolomics approach bears the innovative und non-invasive potential to determine severity and complexity of CKD without using eGFR equations based on creatinine and cystatin C. Furthermore, the metabolite panel offers chances for studying CKD induced co-morbidities.“,
Professor Emeritus Jochen Ehrich, MD, DCMT (London), Honorary Member of the European Society for Paediatric Nephrology

According to the KDIGO 2012 Clinical Practice Guideline for the Evaluation and Management of Chronic Kidney Disease, the severity of CKD should be classified based on glomerular filtration rate (GFR), etiology and albuminuria. The gold standards to determine measured GFR are inulin and other exogenous substances [1, 2, 3]. These mGFR methods are expensive, invasive, time-consuming and very limited for routine use in out-patient settings. Therefore, GFR is mostly estimated by...

Project: PARASOL – Detection of Renal Allograft Rejection by NMR-based Urine Metabolomics

Quantitative evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy (AUC value, sensitivity, and specificity) of AXINON® renalTX-SCORE-U100® for the detection of acute renal allograft rejections

“A non-invasive diagnostic test for close-monitoring of kidney transplant patients and minimizing the number of potential graft-harming biopsies for earliest therapy intervention to preserve the kidney“,
Eva-Maria Huber, Study Manager Clinical Development, Numares AG

Kidney transplantation is the treatment method of choice for patients with terminal kidney failure [1]. Transplant patients require frequent follow-up examinations to detect potential complications at an early stage. Therefore, biopsies are performed during aftercare. They are generally considered to be safe, but it remains an invasive procedure with a risk...

Project: BLADE – Bladder Cancer Detection using Metabolomic Evaluation of Urine and Blood

Development and Evaluation of a metabolite constellation for the diagnosis of bladder cancer in patients with persistent microhaematuria.

“A minimal invasive diagnostic test for a reliable detection of bladder cancer.“
Amauri G.S. Santamaría, Study ManagerClinical Development, Numares AG

Urinary bladder cancer (BCa) is a malignant tumour that usually develops in the mucous membrane (urothelial carcinoma) of the bladder. The symptoms are relatively unspecific. One of the earliest cardinal symptoms of BCa is microscopically detectable haematuria, so-called microhaematuria, [1]. However, microhaematuria commonly has benign causes, such as infection, benign prostate enlargement or...

Project: HERMES – Hepatocellular Carcinoma Recognition by Metabolomics Analysis of Serum

Development and validation of a metabolite constellation in serum for early detection of hepatocellular cancer.

“A diagnostic screening test for early detection of hepatocellular cancer to supplement abdominal sonography in HCC surveillance.“
Dr. Sebastian Hoeckner, Study Manager Clinical Development, Numares AG

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is an aggressive tumor of the liver with annual incidence of 1-6% in at risk patients with liver cirrhosis [1, 2]). Most patients have symptoms only in advanced stage HCC, impeding early detection of the tumor. The 5-year survival rate is <10% if HCC is diagnosed after symptoms...

Project: MUSE – Multiple Sclerosis Biomarker Evaluation

Development and Validation of an NMR-based metabolite constellation that early indicates the transition of relapsing-remitting (RRMS) to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS). 

“A serum-based test for early diagnosis of the RRMS-to-SPMS transition to allow timely therapy adjustment”
Dr. Eric Schiffer, Head of Clinical Development, Numares AG

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is considered to be an immune-mediated disease in which the body’s own defence cells attack the central nervous system. MS involves inflammatory and neurodegenerative processes that damage the insulating myelin sheaths of nerve fibers and the nerve cells themselves.  While about 10-15% of patients begin the disease with primary progressive MS (PPMS) showing continuously worsening of symptoms from disease onset, the majority of patients are initially diagnosed...
