Microbiome analysis services

The GA-map® technology offers a standardized platform that features an end-to-end workflow for targeted microbiota analysis. We provide services tailored for all types of clinical research.

GA-map® Dysbiosis Test is a microbiota test for detection and characterization of dysbiosis in human fecal samples. The test is the first CE-IVD approved assay providing microbiota profiling with an intrinsic healthy reference.

GA-map® Discovery is a Research Use Only, comprehensive, end-to-end microbiota profiling service for clinical and industry research. The service provides deep insight into gut and oral microbiota, based on analysis of over 170 clinically important bacteria.

An increasing number of researchers have discovered the efficiency and simplicity of the GA-map® Dysbiosis Test in gut microbiota analysis.

Merging the rapidness, preciseness, and robustness of RT-PCR approaches with the comprehensiveness of next-generation sequencing, the GA-map® technology drastically reduces the time from analysis to publication.

The GA-map® technology has until now been applied in clinical research in the fields of gastroenterology (IBS and IBD) and metabolic disorders (Diabetes and Obesity).

We used GA-map® in our clinical research within IBS. We have great experience with GA-map® as a tool to select, monitor and follow-up patients.
