Queensland test provides new insights into gut health
Two University of Queensland Professors, Philip Hugenholtz and Gene Tyson have created a test that provides unique insights into the human gut microbiome. Microba Insight™ is the only test in Australia that presents a complete picture of gut health. There are a range of services that use 16S rRNA testing, which sequences a small part of a single bacterial gene, but Microba Insight™ is the first to use metagenomics, which sequences all the genes from the microorganisms within patient samples.
Gut health is a trending issue in the science of nutrition with studies showing connections between the health of the gut microbiome and overall wellbeing. The science behind Microba Insight™ was featured recently in the ABC's science program, Catalyst.
Microba Insight™ is due to launch it's full range of testing products in June 2018.
