We know why the microbiome is important to our clients

Microorganisms (bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses and other single-celled organisms) dominate almost every ecological niche in our planet. Advanced technologies have enabled us to grow our understanding of why microbiome analysis has become recognised as a fundamental component of deeper insights into human, animal, and ecological health.

There are many examples of why the life-science sectors are becoming increasingly interested in developing new microbiome-related products and services:

Academia Microbiome Analysis


Academic laboratories are often limited in resources and expertise for ‘blue skies’ microbiome research.

Atlete microbiome Nutrition Real Madrid

Athletic Nutrition

Athlete and sport nutrition organizations are using the gut microbiome as a means to increase performance and overall fitness. More

Cosmetic Microbiome Analysis

Skin & Cosmetics

The skin microbiome is receiving increasing attention from dermatological and cosmetic companies developing products and treatments.

Fermentation Gut Microbiome

Food Fermentation

Fermentation increases quality, safety and health promoting attributes. Such health claims and their effects on the gut microbiome need to be validated (EFSA regulations).

Genome sequence map

Health & Biotech

Genome characterization of live biotherapeutic strains (prebiotics, probiotics, synbiotics, postbiotics, antibiotics) to improve human and animal health.

Microbiome pharma Analysis


The pharmaceutical sector is increasingly investigating the microbiome for drug metabolism, stability and mode of action. This has also significant regulatory implications.

Nutrition for Gut Health and microbiome

Nutrition & Food Production

The microbiome provides biocontrol agents across complex food chains and adds value to food waste streams. It also enhances nutrient uptake in crops and improves animal nutrition.

Microbiome-based diagnostic and prognostic tools

Clinical Tools

Microbiome-based diagnostic and prognostic tools have clinical applications for personalized treatment strategies.
