Microbiome Profiling

Dive deep into the hidden world of your aquarium with our comprehensive microbiome profiling service. Understand the microbial dynamics that influence the health, balance, and vitality of your marine and aquatic habitats.

  • In-Depth Analysis: Get detailed insights into the microalga, bacteria, viruses, fungus, and symbiotic associations in your aquarium environment.
  • Health and Balance Indicators: Evaluate the balance of beneficial and harmful microbes, guiding optimal tank health and resilience.
  • Environmental Feedback: Track how changes in tank conditions, treatments, or species additions alter the microbiome, allowing for informed adjustments.
  • Custom Recommendations: Based on your microbiome profile, receive suggestions for probiotic additions, water treatments, and feeding adjustments to promote a balanced microbial community.

Disease Detection and Diagnostics

Optimize the health of your aquatic system with our advanced disease detection service. Utilizing next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, we identify the presence of common and emerging diseases, tailoring the data analysis for your specific aquatic species. Our approach enables prompt and accurate disease identification, streamlining treatment and ultimately saving you time and resources.

  • Early Detection: Identify diseases before they become a visible threat, allowing for proactive treatment.
  • Comprehensive Analysis: Scan for a wide range of pathogens affecting corals, fish, invertebrates, and other aquarium species.
  • Actionable Insights: Receive tailored advice for disease management, quarantine recommendations, and treatment procedures.
  • Peace of Mind: Ensure the longevity and well-being of your aquatic ecosystem by eliminating the guesswork in disease diagnostics.
