FAQ

FAQ

What is the microbiome?
The microbiome is a community of bacteria that live in the gut. Nowadays, we know that over 1,000 different types of microbes are active in the human intestines. Thanks to major advances in technology, it is now possible to perform accurate analyses of the microbiome using 16S rRNA sequencing to identify these bacteria based on their DNA. In fact, the genes in the human microbiome outnumber the genes in the human body 100 to 1.

Gut bacteria are part of a big group of microbes that perform important jobs for the human body like digesting food and breaking down dietary fibre, synthesising vitamins and essential chemical compounds as well as protecting the body from inflammation. Some bacteria may participate in the development of certain illnesses but, for most species, only if they are present in abnormal amounts. When the microbiome is balanced, it is able to prevent the intrusion and overgrowth of potentially pathogenic bacteria, thus contributing to overall health.
Why should I take a microbiome test?
The Atlas Microbiome Test analyses the types of bacteria present and their proportion in the overall microbiome. It provides information about the various functions of your gut bacteria, like the extent to which they protect you against certain diseases and inflammation, as well as what vitamins they synthesise. You will also get recommendations to improve and maintain the balance of your microbiome by adding specific foods to your diet.
What's the difference between this test and laboratory analysis?
Atlas uses advanced technology to analyse the DNA of your gut bacteria. Unlike conventional laboratory analysis, the Atlas Microbiome Test not only qualitatively determines the composition of bacteria, it calculates the proportion of different types of bacteria in the microbiome. The 16S rRNA sequencing used for the Atlas test is more sensitive: it can detect bacteria that cannot be cultivated in Petri dishes (the method routinely employed by laboratories for stool sample analysis).
How do we know that bacteria affects our health?
More than 20,000 scientific articles have been published about the gut microbiome and its relationship with various health conditions over the past decade. Every month, new research is released in this field. We used these publications to develop an interpretation system that is now featured in our microbiome test.

This research has established that bacteria in the microbiome are not simply 'good' or 'bad' species. Rather, how microbes participate in health or illness is dependent on their abundance in the overall community and how they relate to one another. The recommendations provided on your personal account have been developed on the basis of microbiome research by doctors and scientists.
Should I follow a special diet before taking the test?
No, you should not change your diet. Keep eating the way you normally do — this will allow us to get an accurate picture of your 'normal' microbiome and provide recommendations on how to improve or maintain it.
Can I do the test if I am sick or taking medication?
You should only collect a stool sample in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. If you have been taking antibiotics or a long course of NSAIDs or have undergone surgery, wait at least 3 months before taking the Atlas Microbiome Test.
Where can I get my results?
Your microbiome test results and raw data will be available in your online personal account at https://atlasbiomed.com/account.
When will I get my results?
Your results will be uploaded to your personal account about 4−8 weeks after your sample arrives at the laboratory.
