What is a Gut Microbiome Test?
A gut microbiome test is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that allows you to analyze the composition of the bacteria in your digestive tract. This test is useful in detecting imbalances in gut microbiome health, which can lead to a variety of issues such as digestive problems, immune system deficiencies, nutrient malabsorption, and other discomforts.
Why is Microbiome Testing Important?
By identifying imbalances in your gut microbiome, you can use your personalized recommendations to take steps to correct them and improve your health goals. With this information, you can make informed decisions about your diet, lifestyle, and supplement choices to optimize your gut microbiome and prevent future digestive issues.

We identify species using 16s rRNA V3-V4 regions and we test for 10,000+ bacterial species but only show the ones that are statistically significant in your sample.
We specialize in bacteria. Bacteria are the most abundant microorganisms in the microbiome. They moderate the environment to manage yeast, fungi, and other pathogens naturally.
Ombre home tests are not intended to diagnose or treat any conditions. We use the bacteria in your sample to provide evidence-based insights into which foods and probiotic strains will optimize your microbiome and target your symptoms.
We use Illumina MiSeq Machines to conduct 16s rRNA microbial sequencing on the v4 region that brings in roughly 10-15M reads per run.
We provide microbiome testing that looks at 16s rRNA to determine the total abundance and distribution of bacteria in your stool sample. Through this we are able to provide you personalized food recommendations and probiotic recommendations.
Our Personalized Microbiome Reports allow you to see what types of microbes exist in your body and how it relates to others and cutting-edge research. By viewing the latest research individuals will gain a better understanding of their microbiome.
That said, It’s important to be aware that Ombre is not intended to diagnose a disease or other medical condition, or tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease or condition in the future. Ombre is not intended as a substitute for medical diagnosis or treatment, and should not be used as the basis for a diagnosis or treatment. You should always consult your physician or health care provider about any health issues and before making any changes to your current care.
We are currently estimated at 2-4 weeks. As we continue to scale you’ll start to receive your results much quicker.
Ombre's report has been designed to be easily understandable. That said, since microbiome science is still quite complicated we would love to lend a hand. Feel free to reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
