Carbiotix receives first animal related LinkGut service order

Mar 12, 2024, 16:00

Carbiotix (publ) ("Carbiotix" or the "Company") announces today that the Company’s first ever animal-related LinkGut service order from a leading company developing microbiome intervention solutions for different human and animal applications. This test order relates to samples taken from canines and is valued at 32,000 SEK. This is the first time that Carbiotix has offered its LinkGut microbiome diagnostic service for animal related applications. This development increases the potential customer base for the LinkGut service, now including both human and animal applications.

Erik Deaner, CEO of Carbiotix, comments:
“I am very pleased to announce that Carbiotix has ventured into the animal microbiome diagnostics market with the first LinkGut service order for an animal application. Although the value of this first test order is only 32,000 SEK, it is symbolic and demonstrates the viability and appeal of the LinkGut service for animal related applications. Even though animals are not our core business, the flexibility of our LinkGut service offer makes it attractive for areas other than human applications. This includes animals trained for special purposes, such as K-9s, companion animals such as dogs and cats, animals involved in husbandry activities, as well as wild animals being researched.

As with human applications, customers studying animals are looking for a microbiome service provider that can provide value with regards to cost, flexibility and reliability. We will continue to market our leadership position across all three of these areas and continue to explore new opportunities in the over 2 Billion Euro market for microbiome sequencing services (1).

This development also has the potential to assist Carbiotix to begin selling its prebiotic modulators for animal food related applications like pet food, as well as investigating potential upcycling opportunities with pet food and animal husbandry companies through the NutraCycle service.
