Boston Analytical:  Spearheading Innovation in Advanced Microbiome Testing

Top 10 Microbiome Consulting/Service Companies - 2020

Both inside and out, our bodies harbor a huge array of micro-organisms. Alongside bacteria, we also host single-celled organisms known as archaea, as well as fungi, viruses and other microbes. Together these are dubbed the human microbiota. A plethora of conditions, from obesity to anxiety, appear to be linked to the microbes inside us. The human microbiome has been connected to diseases like diabetes, autism, AIDS, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and cancer. Owing to this, microbiome has always been one of the hot topics of research.

Microbiomes contains 200 times more genetic material than a human genome and comprises more than 100 trillion organisms. Even to analyze a person’s gut flora can take several years. With the help of artificial intelligence (AI) and the most advanced computing hardware, however, today, the task can be reduced to minutes.

At the same time, the emergence of next-generation sequencing (NGS) has begun to challenge culture tests. Besides, healthcare professionals are also leveraging a qPCR-based platform with fluorescent-labeled oligonucleotide probes for assessing human gut microbiome composition.

Today, there is a wide variety of solution and service providers entering the industry with a set of advanced and integrated microbiome solution and service offerings. To help companies navigate through the best-of-breed microbiome solution and service providers, Pharma Tech Outlook has put together this edition. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CIOs.

We present to you Pharma Tech Outlook’s, “Top 10 Microbiome Consulting/Service Companies – 2020.”

OlaWell

OlaWell

The foods we eat change the composition of millions of bacteria lining our gut - the gut microbiome. In turn, an imbalance of good versus bad bacteria in our gut can cause a whole host of issues such as anxiety, leaky gut, obesity, or even issues with sleep. Science is rapidly progressing in this area. New connections are regularly discovered between previously unexplained ailments and the gut microbiome. OlaWell analyze your microbiome with our proprietary algorithms to identify specific foods that can improve the balance and overall well-being of your microbiome. You may also learn what foods you may be sensitive to. The results help you choose food that makes you feel good
