Translational Microbiome Platform

Project description

Digital system for microbiome analysis to revolutionise clinical practice

Healthcare professionals will have help in integrating microbiome analysis into their clinical practice. The EU-funded MICK project will make this process more accessible and easier by automating the analysis process and providing evidence-based analytics, insights and practical recommendations in real time. As a unique solution, MICK system is user-friendly and cost-effective. Set to revolutionise the field of microbiome analysis and its application in the clinical setting, this digital decision-support system will provide accurate insights and analysis of microbiome raw data instantly. The project expects MICK system to help diagnostic labs and clinical centres scale their service offering to patients without any major investments.


Dysbiosis (the imbalance of the microbial community that resides within and upon us) can affect health and represents a risk factor for the genesis and evolution of a plethora of chronic diseases and pathologies. The analysis of the microbiome is necessary to detect, assess and monitor it. Nevertheless, microbiome analysis and its application to the clinical field is very complex, expensive, and time-consuming.
We created MICK, the first digital decision support system helping healthcare professionals in integrating microbiome analysis into clinical practice. MICK automated platform analyses microbiome raw data in real-time, with the highest accuracy and translates it into evidence-based analytics, insights, and practical recommendations.
MICK allows customers (clinical centres and diagnostics labs) to scale their service offering to patients without any upfront investment, determining up to 75% cost reduction and faster TAT compared to existing solutions.
