16S rRNA Gut Microbiome DNA Sequencing
Personalised gut health detection and management combination
The Importance of Gut Microbiota
There are about 100 trillion microbes in human gut, and there are about 500-1000 of different species. The number of these microorganisms is 10 times more than human cells, and the total mass is up to two kilograms.
Recent studies showed that intestinal microbes will affect human health and could be regarded as the second genome of humans.
Microbiota imbalance is associated with:
The principle of 16s rRNA gut microbiome test is based on detecting the sequences of the highly variable region of the 16S rRNA gene in order to identify the microbial flora composition and richness in our gut microbiota. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a non-cultivation method that generating data on the entire microbial population in our samples. These data would undergo a comprehensive analysis to determine the relationship between the gut microbes and risk of a specific disease.

The main advantage of the 16S rRNA test is the simultaneous detection of the relative abundance of more than 160 different bacterial genera in a single run. These data can provide a relatively complete map of our gut and the following analysis would be included in the report:
