Imbalances in the gut ecology have been linked to Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), multiple sclerosis, diabetes (types 1 & 2), allergies, asthma, cancer, as well as other pathologies.

 
 

 

Subpopulations in society.

Within society, sub populations of people exist, differing in their gut ecology configuration. We call this the "Microtype".

To understand the link between gut ecology and disease as well as to determine the response to potential treatments, you must be able to:

The greater sensitivity of our analysis method allows us to detect small variations in the fraction of rare mirco-organisms that would be missed by current methods.

 
 

 

Our company provides a quantitative and comprehensive profiling of the human gut ecology.
