Animal Health & Performance

Research into the animal microbiome focuses on studying the microbial populations that inhabit animals, in order to determine their role in health, disease, and development. A better understanding and control of the animal microbiome will improve animal nutrition through probiotics, feed additives and customised diets.

BaseClear offers you complete animal microbiome analysis and reporting services for better insights into microbial populations and their functions. BaseClear is involved in many projects that are focused on this emerging research area to identify and characterise the microbiomes of various animal species.
