Sequentia Biotech awarded the EIC Accelerator funding for MICK, its translational microbiome platform
Sequentia Biotech has just kicked off a two-year project co-financed by the European Innovation Council Accelerator program to advance and bring to market MICK, the first digital decision support platform helping healthcare professionals integrating microbiome analysis into clinical practice.
MICK and the benefits of Microbiome analysis for society
MICK is an all-in-one, cloud-based human microbiome analysis platform for healthcare. It provides automated, real-time, and accessible insights on the patient’s microbiome health status thus delivering evidence-based and patient specific recommendations to support the clinical decision-making process.
MICK sets a big step forward in the detection and monitoring of microbiome imbalance statuses – dysbiosis – which represent a risk factor for the genesis and evolution of a plethora of chronic diseases and pathologies. MICK will make microbiome analysis among healthcare practitioners accessible and as a consequence strongly increase access to targeted preventive medicine for citizens.
The EIC Accelerator program will help MICK becoming the reference software solution for microbiome analysis in Europe, by providing accurate, accessible, and affordable access to improve health outcomes to its citizens.
