Driven by technology, supported by data, focused on insight.
Our approaches live at the nexus of analytical technologies, computational learning, and population-scale clinical studies.
There is a fundamental mismatch between disease diagnosis and treatment that has given rise to the inefficiencies still seen in drug development today. Aligning biological targets, disease states, and therapies requires discovery of biomarkers that identify patients most likely to benefit from specific treatments. That is where Sapient’s Biomarker Discovery Engine comes in.
Sapient’s Core Technology
Take a closer look at our platform.
Our methods for untargeted metabolomics reduce the complexity of biomarker discovery while enabling identification of small molecule biomarkers at an entirely new scale and level of fidelity.
Sapient’s next-generation rapid liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (rLC-MS) infrastructure and automated workflows scale the speed and capacity of current analytical technologies, assaying >11,000 small molecule biomarkers per biosample in less than 1 minute per sample. Using untargeted molecular profiling, these systems enable discovery of uncharacterized compounds.
Applying proprietary statistical and machine learning tools to the generated data, Sapient enables identification of key molecules that provide actionable insights for your drug development program, such as biomarkers of target engagement, biological processes, disease progression, or adverse response.
Human Biology Database
Sapient’s expansive repository is among the most extensive generated to date, comprised of data from hundreds of thousands of human biosamples with >10-30 years of patient follow-up data. We reference the database to derive insight into the specificity of biomarkers elucidated in a study.
Collectively, these technologies enable Sapient to:
Identify key biological mechanisms of disease
Confirm pharmacological engagement of key targets
Provide early insight into potential drug safety risks
Uncover dosing and timing of drug targets
Align patients, disease biology, and specific therapies
A Culture of Quality
