Floragraph is developing the first point-of-care microbiome profiling device, going from ‘poop to profile’ in 2 hours, at low cost, in your home or doctor's office. The development of a healthy microbiome over the first year of life is critical to long term health and perturbations to this process, including C-sections, antibiotic use, and lack of breastfeeding, can lead to numerous long-term health conditions, such as asthma, autoimmune disease, and obesity. Floragraph’s solution enables longitudinal microbiome profiling at home, in a form factor designed for parents of newborns. Floragraph’s platform will provide new parents a quantitative measure of their baby's developing microbiome, enabling early detection and active prevention. Floragraph is based in the Bay Area and is seeking seed funding.
