Along the last two decades of activity in the microbiome field, our founders:
One of the most important and recent paradigm shifts in medicine is the recognition of the central role that the gut microbiome plays in human health. However, the implementation of research findings in concrete applications is limited by the lack of specific analysis systems. Mainly, there is a lack of reliable and standardized in vitro platforms allowing to run high throughput analysis on the human microbiome. With the financial support of the EU and the state of Berlin, ACARYON develops a new in vitro human microbiome model that aims mimicking the natural gut conditions, thereby allowing to ensure a stable composition of the human microbiome in the system for more than 48 hours.
