You’re never alone, thanks to your gut microbiome.

  • Learn how microbes protect you from disease
  • Understand how diet affects gut bacteria

  • Dietary fibre breakdown and butyrate synthesis
  • Personalised food recommendations
  • Probiotics and beneficial bacteria report

Discover the world of microbes

There are trillions of bacteria living on and inside our bodies. Besides, the volume of DNA in your microbiome far exceeds the human DNA of your body. Moreover, scientists consider the gut microbiome to be a separate organ.

Discover, improve, repeat

So, follow our recommendations and take the test every three months.
  • Track your disease protection, microbiome diversity and dietary fibre ratings.
  • Follow the evolution of your beneficial and probiotic bacteria levels.
  • Get fresh food and probiotic supplement recommendations.

Microbiome test results

Since discovering bacterial communities living in symbiosis with the human bodies, scientists have conducted over 20,000 research studies to understand this relationship. Further, they developed a microbiome test based on the results of this research. They have established links for many aspects of our health, like microbiome protection from specific diseases, immunity, vitamin production, diet and nutrition.

Frequently asked questions about the Microbiome test

Why should I take a microbiome test?

This Microbiome Test (Ohmygut® test) analyses the types of bacteria present and their proportion in the overall microbiome. It provides information about the various functions of your gut bacteria, like the extent to which they protect you against certain diseases and inflammation and what vitamins they synthesise. You will also get recommendations to improve and maintain the balance of your microbiome by adding specific foods to your diet.

What’s the difference between this Microbiome test and laboratory analysis?

Atlas Biomed uses advanced technology to analyse the DNA of your gut bacteria. Unlike conventional laboratory analysis, the Atlas Microbiome Test qualitatively determines the composition of bacteria. It also calculates the proportion of different types of bacteria in the microbiome. The 16S rRNA sequencing technology used for the Atlas Microbiome Test is more sensitive: it can detect bacteria that nobody can cultivate in Petri dishes (the method routinely employed by laboratories for stool sample analysis).

How do we know that bacteria affect our health?

Over the past decade, more than 20,000 scientific articles about the gut microbiome and its relationship with various health conditions have been publicly available. New research release in this field is public every month. We used this extensive scientific evidence to develop the interpretation system for this microbiome test. This research has established that bacteria in the microbiome are not simply ‘good’ or ‘bad’ species. Instead, their participation in health or illness depends on their abundance in the ecosystem. How they relate to one another also matters. The recommendations provided in your account have been developed based on microbiome research by doctors and scientists.

How to prepare for the test?

You don’t have to change your diet. Moreover, keep eating the way you usually do. It will allow us to accurately picture your “normal” microbiome and recommend improving or maintaining it. It would help if you only collected a stool sample without gastrointestinal symptoms. If you have been taking antibiotics or a short course of NSAIDs or have undergone surgery, wait at least three months before taking the Atlas Microbiome Test. If the medication taken is a part of your everyday life, you will provide a sample, as your microbiome is the most typical.

How it works

How to take the test

When you receive your kit, follow the instructions, collect your sample and send it back. We'll do the rest, like making sure the sample is valid, analysing the DNA of your gut bacteria and interpreting the data. All you have to do is log on to your account to see the results.

1. Order the Microbiome Test online

2. Register your kit before collecting the sample

First, go to and register your account. You should report the barcode located on the container in the account, which is inside the box. Please remember that we will not give you access to your results if you do not register this barcode.

3. Collect the stool sample

Please read the instructions carefully, so they do not affect the quality of your sample. Keep your sample at room temperature once you've sealed the tube tightly. You don't need to put it in the fridge. Seal it in the specimen bag.

4. Return the kit by post

Seal the box with your sample inside and return it by mail. The original box already includes prepaid postage, so you only have to drop it into the postbox, and we will handle the rest.

5. We analyse your microbiome

Your sample is analysed in the lab using Illumina technology. The DNA fragments in your sample are studied to identify your microbes and evaluate their proportion in the microbiome. It may take 4–8 weeks before your results are available on your account. Laboratories analyse every sample case-by-case, and we will notify you personally if there are any changes to this timeframe.

6. Interpreting data

We use algorithms based on published scientific research to analyse your microbiome and establish personalised lifestyle recommendations.

7. Get the results

We will add the results of your test to your account. This process usually takes up to 8 weeks. We will notify you by email as soon as the results are ready.

8. Test again in 3 months

Get a check-up every three months to see what has worked and where you can make progress:
  • Track your disease protection, microbiome diversity and dietary fibre ratings
  • Follow the evolution of your beneficial and probiotic bacteria levels
  • Get fresh food and probiotic supplement recommendations

9. Privacy protection

Your medical and personal data are safe, from ordering your kit to receiving results online. Read our Information Governance Policy to learn more about how we protect your privacy.
  • The laboratory securely stores User Data on certified servers within the European Union.
  • SHA-256 with RSA Encryption

What you will learn



    The ratios of different bacteria in your gut can influence your level of protection from obesity, diabetes type II, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and coronary heart disease.

    The diversity of your microbiome assesses the number of species present and their ability to synthesise vitamins, butyrate and essential short-chain fatty acids that help maintain the integrity of your gut lining.

    The test establishes a personalised list of recommended foods that balance your microbiome.

Vitamins & Nutrition


    Gut bacteria produce vitamins and may influence nutrient levels in the body.

    This test evaluates your gut bacteria's ability to break down dietary fibre, which is essential for the microbiome and overall health.

    The microbiome breaks down the dietary fibre in butyrate and essential short-chain fatty acid to maintain the gut lining and prevent inflammation.



    Most people's microbiomes fall into one of 3 categories.

    Determines how resistant your microbiome to negative factors is.

    People in different places have different microbiomes. This test shows to what nationality your diet is most similar.

Changes in the microbiome.

External factors like eating habits, antibiotics, illness and others strongly influence the microbiome. It also means that you can strengthen it by modifying your diet. For the best results, we recommend doing this test at regular intervals and after any critical changes in your lifestyle, allowing you to follow up and make positive changes for your overall well-being.
