Key points from article :

Carbiotix is set to collaborate with Food Marble to understand the correlation between digestive health data and gut microbiome data.

The eight-week study in 20 individuals will use two different prebiotic fibres.

“..a very important step on route to increasing the frequency and amount of gut health data,” - Kristofer Cook, CEO of Carbiotix.

“Food Marble digestive tracker to help diagnose and monitor gut health on a daily basis, supported and validated by more comprehensive gut health data based on faecal sampling,” ​- Cook.

Eventually the platform could be used to modify the dosing of Carbiotix therapeutic products in real-time.

Food Marble produces and sells a miniaturised AIRE device that saw $1 million of sales before its official launch in 2018.

Carbiotix has grown a significant offering in the recent years, closing funding of more than €1m over the past 4 years.

Launched its PersonalGut service and a monthly microbiome testing service. Priced at between €9 and €19 per month.
