Olaris publishes in special Non-Uniform Sampling issue of Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry
October 28, 2020
Dr. Elizabeth O'Day and Leslie Hoyt's paper on discusses the opportunity for NUS NMR metabolite in-vitro diagnostics- key tools that can accelerate the goals of precision medicine.
The ease of sample preparation, quantification of metabolite levels for overlapping peaks often found in patient samples, and reproducibility afforded by NMR can be used to develop metabolite based diagnostics with NUS. This may serve to reduce the long acquisition time associated with NMR.

Olaris is thrilled to present at the SABCS! We are excited to learn from the world's top breast cancer oncologists and share the results of our recent study, "Pretreatment serum metabolome predicts PFS in first-line trastuzumab-treated metastatic breast cancer." Learn more about our findings here.
Dr. Bo Zhang, Olaris Head of Metabolite Discovery, had a paper come out in Analytical Chemistry!
December 11, 2019
"Accurate and Efficient Determination of Unknown Metabolites in Metabolomics by NMR-Based Molecular Motif Identification" discusses the new SUMMIT method to identify chemical classes of metabolites, a critical tool in understanding patient health and disease. Read the paper here!
Olaris Metabolite Scientist, Dr. Chandra Honrao, had a paper come out in Nature Research!
November 29, 2019
We are so proud of Dr. Honrao for his work in helping to discover a new antibiotic for Gram-negative pathogens, a notoriously difficult pathogen to target. In fact, the last development in antibiotics for Gram-negative bacteria was in the 1960s. The exciting discovery has the potential to be developed into new therapeutics. Read the paper here!
Paper: Cytidine monophosphate N-acetylneuraminic acid synthetase enhances invasion of human triple-negative breast cancer cells
October 15, 2018
Cancer cells have altered bioenergetics, which contributes to their ability to proliferate, survive in unusual microenvironments, and invade other tissues. Changes in glucose metabolism can have pleomorphic effects on tumor cells. To investigate potential mechanisms responsible for the increased malignancy associated with altered glucose metabolism, we used Olaris technology to identify glucose metabolites differentially produced in a highly malignant human triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) cell line (BPLER) and a less malignant isogenic TNBC cell line (HMLER).
