ABOUT US

The human microbiota can be regarded as an additional organ per se and performs a wide range of functions, from facilitating the digestion to producing vitamins, modulating the risk of metabolic diseases and helping shape the immune system. However, extensive use of antibiotics and disinfectants in modern societies, as well as dietary changes, have resulted in a significant decline of microbiota diversity.
 

AB-Biotics identified areas where modern lifestyle has had little impact and thus the original microbiota has been preserved. These areas are known to display a low incidence of immune and metabolic disorders, an observation that led to the development of the “hygiene hypothesis”.  As a consequence, AB-Biotics conducted several expeditions to isolate  Lactic Acid Bacteria Strains from healthy individuals living in those areas, in order to build a strains bank composed of “microbial old friends” whose numbers are declining in the microbiotas of people living in modern societies.
 

Currently, AB-Biotics owns a strains bank with a collection of more than 550 different wild-type strains of human origin sampled from different areas in the world.

Overview

AB-Biotics was founded by Miquel Angel Bonachera and Sergi Audivert in 2004. Both students at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), in 2004. The company was started with two technology platforms:

 

— Research and development of probiotics, based on its own collection of 550 strains.

— Development of advanced genetic tools for healthcare providers.

Equipo

The AB-BIOTICS team comprises professionals with expertise in different disciplines, including biotechnology, microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, chemistry and bioinformatics, providing us with broad technical knowledge and skills.

Vision & Mision

Vision: AB-Biotics aspires to set a standard in the European biotechnology industry for both Microbiome Modulators and Personalized Medicine.


Mision: AB-Biotics strives to improve health by developing products and providing services that help support healthy living and prevent diseases.

LAB SERVICES

Personalized Medicine & Genetics
Personalized Medicine & Genetics

AB-Biotics laboratory is a private molecular genetics laboratory renowned for its pioneering work in genomic testing and the commercialization of Neuropharmagen, a CNS disorders personalized medicine platform that combines pharmacogenetics with drug pharmacokinetics, drug pharmacodynamics, comorbidity and environmental factors in a single interface for its use in psychiatry and neurology that assures the safest and most appropriates medication for each patient.

 

In addition to we recently implemented  genetic tests in the fertility and pain treatment fields. But working in the development of new fields such as Endometriosis, or certain types of specific Oncology testing.

 

Nonetheless AB-BIOTICS is combining its genetics R&D with its microbiome R&D teams in order to develop metagenomic tests to tackle personalized microbiome modulators.  

 

We offer a wide range of genomic services which allows us to help our clients select the best solution to meet their business needs. AB-Biotics laboratory has based its strength on its level of equipment with the latest technology available allowing us to reduce costs and to become more competitive. Our staff includes phD scientists expertise in genetics which can guide you through every phase of your project.


Moreover, AB-Biotics also offers its expertise on bioinformatics to help get the most of genetic data. By means of its expertise on machine learning algorithms (such as multifactor dimensionality reduction, support vector machines or decision trees), AB-Biotics is able to identify multigene signatures that can display markedly enhanced predictive power compared both to single genes and to multigenic scores based solely on additivity. Machine learning algorithms are better suited to identify predictive signatures from sparse and incomplete datasets than traditional univariate and multivariate statistics, especially when several genetic variants are involved in a given trait and the presence of a variant in one locus can synergize or can nullify the effect of a variant in a second locus.

AB-Biotics has developed a wide range of clinically documented probiotics to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (AB-LIFE), reduce the burden of gastroinestinal alterations in patients affected by IBD and IBS (I3.1), prevent the recurrence of vaginal Candida infections (AB-INTIMUS), treat infant colic (AB-Colic), displace oral pathogens causing caries, gingivitis and halitosis or bad breath (AB-Dentisanium), etc.


During the latest years AB-BIOTICS research activities have been focusing in exhaustive metagenomic analysis of human body’s microbiomes in order to find microbiome modulators aimed at improving the human microbiota to reduce the risk of dysbiosis-related diseases such as Caries or CDI infections.
