This microbiome test shows how gut bacteria impact your health. To clarify, gut bacteria can protect you from 5 diseases. They also synthesise 8 vitamins and influence the immune system. Get personalised food recommendations to help you balance your microbiome.

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

  • Learn how microbes protect you from disease
  • Understand how diet affects gut bacteria
  • Optimise microbe‚Äôs vitamin synthesis
  • 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 contained 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 3 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 the discovery of 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 clear 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¬ģ 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, as well as 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 not only qualitatively determines the composition of bacteria, but also calculates the proportion of different types of bacteria in the microbiome. The 16S rRNA sequencing technology that is used for the Atlas Microbiome Test is more sensitive: it can detect bacteria that cannot be cultivated in Petri dishes (the method routinely employed by laboratories for stool sample analysis).

How do we know that bacteria affect our health?

More than 20,000 scientific articles are publicly available about the gut microbiome and its relationship with various health conditions over the past decade. New research release in this field is available every month. We used this extensive body of scientific evidence to develop the interpretation system for this microbiome test. This research has established that bacteria in the microbiome are not simply ‚Äėgood‚Äô or ‚Äėbad‚Äô species. Rather, how microbes participate in health or illness is dependent on their abundance in the overall ecosystem and how they relate to one another. The recommendations provided in your personal account have been developed based on microbiome research by doctors and scientists.

How to prepare for the test?

You don‚Äôt have to change your diet. Keep eating the way you normally do - this will allow us to get an accurate picture of your ‚Äúnormal‚ÄĚ microbiome as well as provide recommendations on how to improve or maintain it. It would help if you only collected a stool sample in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. If you have been taking antibiotics or a short course of NSAIDs or have undergone surgery, wait at least 3 months before taking the Atlas Microbiome Test. If the medication taken is a part of your everyday life, you will be able to provide a sample as it will be based on your most typical microbiome.

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 personal account to see the results.

1. Order the Microbiome Test online

2. Register your kit before collecting the sample

First, go to https://atlasbiomed.com/account and register your personal account. In the account, you should register the barcode that is located on the container, which is inside the box. Please remember that, if you do not register this barcode, we will not be able to give you access to your results.

3. Collect the stool sample

Please read the instructions carefully, so you do not affect the quality of your sample. Once the tube is sealed tightly, keep your sample at room temperature. 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‚Äď8 weeks before your results are available on your personal account. Every sample is analysed on a case-by-case basis, 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

The results of your test will be added to your personal account. This process usually takes up to 8 weeks. You will be notified by email as soon as the results are ready.

8. Test again in 3 months

Get a check-up every 3 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 at every stage, from ordering your kit to receiving results online. Read our Information Governance Policy to learn more about how we protect your privacy.

What you will learn

Health

  • DISEASE PROTECTION¬≠

    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.
  • MICROBIOME DIVERSITY¬≠

    The diversity of your microbiome assesses the number of species present and their ability to synthesise vitamins and butyrate, an important short-chain fatty acid that helps maintain the integrity of your gut lining.
  • FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS¬≠

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

Vitamins & Nutrition

  • VITAMIN SYNTHESIS¬≠

    Gut bacteria produce vitamins and may influence nutrient levels in the body.
  • DIETARY FIBRE¬≠

    This test evaluates your gut bacteria’s ability to break down dietary fibre, which is essential for microbiome and overall health.
  • BUTYRATE¬≠

    The microbiome breaks down the dietary fibre in butyrate, an essential short-chain fatty acid that maintains the gut lining and prevents inflammation.
     

Bacteria

  • MICROBIOME TYPE¬≠

    Most people’s microbiomes fall into one of 3 categories.
  • BACTERIAL DIVERSITY¬≠

    Determines how resistant your microbiome to negative factors is.
  • ‚ÄėNATIONALITY‚Äô¬≠

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

Changes in the Microbiome

The microbiome is strongly influenced by external factors like eating habits, antibiotics, illness and more. This 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 important changes in your lifestyle, which will allow you to follow up and make positive changes for your overall well-being.
