At Florates we have developed a new platform over the past 2 years for molecular screening of the (for now) poultry microbiome. The microbiome is widely recognized as an important factor in the daily health and welfare of animals. The sequencing data of the microbiome is growing exponentially, but it remains an extremely complex system. Our molecular tests offer the opportunity to unravel this complex system. Florates aims to provide the diagnostic system to gain daily insight into shifts in the poultry microbiome. Without the use of drugs, but by providing insight into the microbiome, animal health and welfare can be improved through management measures such as nutrition and feed additives.
