Microbiome Management

Microbial communities are present in all industrial processes, from aquaculture to agriculture to fermentation. We fingerprint microbiomes to empower industries with actionable insights to safeguard and improve their microbiome health.


We are experts in the single-cell analysis of microbes and have built a scalable analysis platform capable of creating a holistic view on microbiome health. Our technology grants detailed, data-driven, and science-based insights which you can leverage to bring the microbiome health of your process to its full potential

Measure every cell in your sample

  • Characterise (in)organic particles, algae, bacteria, fungi, and yeast cells (large viruses in development)
  • Determine absolute cell concentrations

Automated profiling of microbial fingerprints

  • Cost-efficient collection of vast amounts of data.
  • Health and performance markers for your process

Data-driven management recommendations

  • Detailed management reports
  • Cloud-based dashboard for routine surveillance services.

Seamless integration with state-of-the-art technologies

  • qPCR, agar plating, next-gen sequencing, …

Don’t take our word for it. Let the science speak for itself.
