BiomeSense has created the first technology to overhaul microbiome data generation & analysis (1) GutLab At-home Automated Laboratory – The GutLab is a proprietary “smart bathroom” technology for microbiome tracking, combining a user-friendly interface and advanced internal fluidics to produce high-frequency, fully standardized data (2) MetaBiome Bioinformatics Platform – MetaBiome is an AI-powered microbiome biomarker discovery engine, designed by Rob Knight @ UCSD, that uses advanced signal processing algorithms to enable microbiome analysis far beyond anything possible today In an industry first, these solutions form a single comprehensive platform – the GutLab continuously feeds ultra-high-resolution data into MetaBiome’s database where it is analyzed using MetaBiome AI. This platform generates far superior microbiome data than ever before possible, revolutionizing the development of microbiome biomarkers, precision therapeutics, and consumer products.
Micronoma’s approach to addressing this unmet need utilizes cell-free microbial DNA (cf-mbDNA) biomarkers and machine learning technology to achieve early detection and classification of cancer from minimally invasive liquid biopsy samples. Human tissues, including tumors, are extensively colonized by taxonomically diverse microbes. Intra-tumoral microbial activity and events of cellular turnover and trafficking contribute to shedding of microbial nucleic acids into the bloodstream where they can be captured and detected by a simple blood draw. This is all based on their patent pending Oncobiota™ platform which reveals the cancer-related microbiome with unparalleled specificity and sensitivity. This new minimally invasive and precise microbiome-driven liquid biopsy™ method can detect cancer in its earliest stages, unlike tests that only focus on the human genome, epigenome, or cancer mutation.
