The Biomesight microbiome test provides a snapshot of the gut microbiome utilizing 16S rRNA sequencing technology. You will receive a count and relative abundance percentage of the bacteria in your microbiome, ranging from Phylum down to the species level. 16s DNA sequencing allows us to sequence a specific region (v4) of the 16s gene, and to match these sequences to our curated bacterial database. Using this method we are able to provide relative abundances of all bacterial organisms in your sample rather than targeting just a small subset of bacteria.
We provide an interpretation using Dr Jason Hawrelak's (Probiotic Advisor) recommended ranges for a subset of key bacteria (Probiotics, Commensals and Pathogens) along with our scoring system, diversity calculation and personalized recommendations for food, supplements and lifestyle adjustments based on up-to-date research findings.
The test is capable of detecting up to 3000 different microbes, however, the typical number found ranges from 200-400 per sample.
We include 43 gut health markers and full access to the platform to compare your results to others based on a number of attributes, based on aggregated metrics or individual species.
We leverage your unique microbiome results and health profile to precisely match you to the leading professional-grade supplements on the market. You can also purchase these supplement directly from Fullscript, at a 20% discount.
