The BioFlux™ Metabolic Model

Over the past 4 years, The BioCollective has built an end to end in silico analysis system comprised of proprietary metagenomic data and strain identification technology capable of producing both predictive analytics and novel formulations.   Our platform allows the study of microbial conditions and activities to access cross-feeding, modulation and interactions that assist product development and rapid prototyping.

Today, with The BioCollective, our partners are now capable of leveraging intentional outputs, increased knowledge bases and targeted formulations never before seen.

The Microbiome bank

Our model is driven by one of the world's largest full-spectrum microbiome sample banks in the world. With more than 1,500 full-spectrum samples and growing, this drives strain identification and model enhancements.

Metagenomic Datasets

Our metagenomic data sets are comprised of an array of strain, genomic, antibiotic resistant strain, and additional genomic data to ensure the most robust and quality set for actionable outputs.
