Labskin Breakthrough

Labskin breakthrough clones 16 human skin swabs into 54 living microbiome test subjects.

Labskin scientists cloned 16 swabs of skin from the cheeks of healthy volunteers into 54 Labskin test subjects to allow sequencing of microbial DNA for the identification and quantification of the bacterial microbiome isolated and pooled together. The live bacteria, virus and fungi (microbiota) was consistent on all 54 test subjects for up to 7 days in the Labskin laboratories in York, UK.

The LabskinAI virtual model aggregated and analysed the bacterial microbiome data, extracted from each sample, and after eliminating false or anomalous readings, provided test results within a range of ±10% of the human volunteers’ control skin from which it was initially cloned.
