Next Generation Sequencing, Delivered to your Door

We use Illumina's state of the art MiSeq System. This system locates the amplified 16S RNA genes from thousands of bacteria present in your sample. These genes contain specific signatures allowing the system to categorize them based on their taxonomy.

How the SUPERBIOME™ test works

SUPERBIOME was designed to not only provide you with a breakdown of the bacteria that make up your gut microbiome, but also to enable you to improve your gut health! Your probiotics, in combination with a healthy diet and lifestyle, will help you to boost your microbiome to a healthy, balanced state. Having a healthy and balanced microbiome is shown to have many positive influences on your overall health!
