Microbes all around us work in concert to improve human health, enhance food quality, and boost crop yield. Designing products that recreate these capabilities requires an unprecedented understanding of how microbes behave together.
The kChip physically constructs millions of miniature microbial communities by combinatorially recombining a library of microbes and/or environmental factors.
By observing each constructed community, we identify key ecological ingredients—microbes, prebiotics, and postbiotics—that drive the beneficial capabilities of natural communities.
The possibilities are bigger than we are, so we engage with co-discovery partners in biotech and biopharma to unleash a new era of microbial research and a treasure trove of microbe-based products.
