BiomeSense has developed the GutLabTM , the first ever technology for efficient, low-cost collection and processing of dense, time-series gut microbiome samples.
BiomeSense’s GutLabTM technology makes collecting dense, time-longitudinal microbiome data into a routine exercise—setting the standard for any clinical trial incorporating human microbiome data. Designed from the ground up for extended at-home use, the GutLab eliminates traditional patient adherence obstacles, eliminates any need to store or ship samples, and dramatically lowers the per-sample cost of generating microbiome data. The result is continuous, standardized microbiome data comparable within and across studies.
Fully-Automated,
Self-Contained Laboratory
The freestanding technology is designed to work almost anywhere, by anyone, requiring no user training. Needing only water and household electricity to run, it can be installed in a variety of locations—from a home bathroom to clinical site.
Easy to Use and Mobile
By combining a simple interface for sample collection with advanced internal fluidics, nucleic acid extraction is performed immediately after receiving a sample, with no user input required. This standardizes the primary source of technical bias and enables continuous sampling.
User-Focused Design
The GutLabTM  has been designed with the end user in mind, eliminating the discomfort of manual stool sample collection to improve user experience.
Laboratory
Integrated Laboratory Sequencing
BiomeSense’s state-of-the-art laboratory is a critical part of our turnkey end-to-end solution to microbiome discovery. Staffed with experts in microbiome research, our in-house lab provides unparalleled expertise, convenience, and cost savings, giving us significant advantages over others in the industry. Most important, our in-house lab offers the reassurance that lab sequencing is being provided by specialists in the human microbiome.
Sequencing included for Each Sample
Our laboratory costs are so low, all samples produced by the GutLabTM receive 16(S) rRNA sequencing at the BiomeSense lab at no cost. Shallow or deep shotgun sequencing is also available, at costs far below industry standard.
Standardized Results
All samples undergo the same sequencing process, standardizing results across any range of sample volume and allowing for cross-trial comparison.
The Convenience of
a Fully Integrated Lab
BiomeSense’s laboratory services are fully integrated into our pipeline, eliminating the need to invest precious time or money sourcing and managing laboratory services.
MetabiomeTM
Revolutionary bioinformatics to turn data into discovery
Providing high-quality, dense data isn’t enough that data has to lead to answers. As the final stage of our integrated solution, we are developing a custom bioinformatics platform,
the first ever specifically designed to process
and analyze the unprecedented quantities
of time-series data produced by our pipeline.

Over time, this platform will allow us to create the only standardized, time-series microbiome database in existence with the ability to analyze vast amounts of data within a trial and between trials. As this database grows, our vision is to open it to academic investigators worldwide, exploding microbiome innovation. This revolutionary approach ensures all data generated undergo best-in-class analytical techniques, designed and developed by the team behind the QIIME platform. These novel techniques are being created specifically for longitudinal microbiome investigations, dramatically improving the ability to discover, validate, and interpret microbiome-based discoveries.
Our team
Time-Series Optimized Algorithms
Advanced algorithms, developed by microbiome specialists and guided by our Scientific Advisory Board, provide the last step in our end-to-end solution—exceptional analysis of dense, time-series data, available to everyone we work with
The Future of Microbiome Innovation
Always looking toward the future, we have a vision that extends beyond supporting today’s research. As data is generated, our goal is to build a cross-trial, time-series database that is free and open — encouraging and accelerating novel microbiome discoveries.
Cross-Trial, Time-Series
Microbiome Data
BiomeSense’s coordinated workflow will enable standardized data aggregation and analysis at a scale not possible with existing techniques, creating the first cross-trial, time-series microbiome database.
