Quality Control testing.
Inbiome is the preferred partner of various companies for performing diagnostic laboratory work, like quality control of buffers and water samples, as well as molecular-level quality control of probiotic and cosmetic product. At inbiome, we ensure not only that products are not contaminated, but also that the correct bacterial strains are present. Moreover, to enable customers to receive instant feedback, inbiome provides a dynamic online quality assurance log which is updated as soon as a new batch is processed.
When the Coronavirus pandemic first emerged in the Netherlands in 2020, inbiome put it’s lab, personnel and expertise at the disposal of the Dutch healthcare authorities by providing COVID-19 testing services to the GGD healthcare authorities. We have built a robust high-throughput COVID testing facility that performs thousands of COVID-19 tests everyday for the healthcare services across Amsterdam.
To understand what are the effects of cosmetic products such as soap and deodorants on the microbiota, inbiome performed microbial analysis on the skin using Molecular Culture® Microbiota. Results showed that the microbiota composition of different body sites changed over time, but overall remained healthy, meaning that cosmetic products do not have a detrimental effect on skin microbiota.
with Molecular Culture, the diagnosis was made faster than traditional culture and the patient could have been cured much sooner.
