iBiote is the first service made available by the French medical biology laboratory Alphabio dedicated to the personalized study of human microbiota.
Composed of a young and dynamic team, we do everything to elucidate the complexity of your microbiota and exploit your health capital.
Our strength : expertise based on multidisciplinarity.

Since 2017, the R&D department of the iBiote group has actively participated in research on human microbiota. The establishment of this microbiota analysis service has been the subject of numerous works to standardize analytical protocols for each key step through which the sample must pass. The bacterial DNA contained in the samples is isolated, amplified and then obtained using a new generation sequencing device (Illumina® MiSeq). The bacteria are identified by their universal 16S gene, using bioinformatics methods at the forefront of current research.
Our website is intended to be interactive with the possibility of collecting information relating to microbiota and our range of analysis. Depending on the microbiota analyzed, the sample can be ordered directly online and performed at your home. Thanks to a stabilization solution, this stabilized sample can be returned to our laboratories by post. Once your sample has been received, you can follow the progress of your analysis on our interactive platform and retrieve your detailed and personalized report.
The iBiote project revolves around a proprietary database which centralizes knowledge on microbiota, allowing each new patient to be compared to a population of asymptomatic individuals or suffering from a particular pathology and thus to highlight imbalances potential (dysbiosis and / or characteristic signatures). This database is continuously enriched thanks to continuous recruitment and to our participation in numerous research projects.
