Our Discovery Platform

A globally unique databank for microbiome discovery

Develop new health solutions from the gut microbiome

The microbiome represents a rich source of biology and chemistry to develop new products for improving human health. Unravelling this requires large, well-controlled datasets.

Through its world-leading technology, Microba has generated a large databank of metagenomic gut microbiome samples and associated health and diet data to realise these opportunities.

Microba’s Discovery Platform enables partners to access this databank for data-driven discovery of product opportunities.

  • Enabling evidence-based product development
  • Generating multiple therapeutic leads
  • Discovery of diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers
  • Scientific discovery of novel food and nutrition solutions

Our data-driven approach to discovery

  • Comprehensive cohort with health data

    Over 15,000 consistently analysed samples with more than 1,500 health metadata points per sample to be explored.
  • Advanced bioinformatics, AI and biostatistics

    Inform product development by revealing differences in species, genes and pathways between cohorts using the best approaches.
  • Highly accurate microbial signatures

    Discover reliable signals by combining world-leading profiling with the most systemically consistent microbial taxonomy.
  • Investigate complex relationships

    Extensive metadata including medical history, medication, diet and lifestyle enables robust insights.
  • Discover translatable results

    Understand microbiome community signatures and identify factors promoting health associated species.
  • Identify novel species as leads

    Mining genomic data reveals species that are previously unidentified and not described by science.

Powering evidence-based products

Harness the microbiome-health connection by identifying health and disease associated organisms - and how to influence them - to develop prebiotic, probiotic or postbiotics supplements.
