Microbiota analyses

Analyses of the composition and functionality of the intestinal microbiota using next generation sequencing technologies (NGS).

Analyses of the composition and functionality of the intestinal microbiota using next generation sequencing technologies (NGS) coupled with advance bioinformatics.

The intestinal microbiota is a complex microbial community that live with and inside us (inhabit our gastrointestinal tract) and carries out many functions such as protection against pathogens, modulation of the immune system and production of essential components. The alteration of the microbiota (dysbiosis) has been associated with several illnesses, C. difficile infection, IBD, Crohn’s disease, and medical treatments like antibiotic therapy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy.

We offer the analyses of the composition and functionality of the intestinal microbiota, from a stool sample, using next generation sequencing technologies (NGS) coupled with advance bioinformatics.

These analyses allow us to quantify and characterize the populations of intestinal microbes on each customer, and the comparison with healthy population to understand the alterations and the possible connection with certain diseases. The use of advance technologies together with our scientific experience enable us to provide a comprehensive report that can be easily understand by non-specialized users.
