The kChip Discovery Engine

We power microbial product discovery.

A singularly powerful and versatile technology, kChip leverages miniaturization and random self-assembly to construct and measure millions of defined microbial combinations simultaneously. 
What It Does

We solve the n-choose-k problem.

The math is complicated — kChip takes it in stride. Starting from a collection of n =
kChip physically constructs k =
combinations —a total of 2.1K co-cultures—to unveil the hidden ecology of each microbiome.
How It Works

The complexity of microbial ecology…

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.

…separated, recombined, & measured…

The kChip physically constructs millions of miniature microbial communities by combinatorially recombining a library of microbes and/or environmental factors.

…to generate massive data sets…

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.
