Synthetic communities of known identity for use as controls in your microbiome profiling experiments
Edit me

Mock communities are simple mixtures of known bacteria made in our lab. We currently offer three mock communities (A, B and C), the composition of which is detailed in the table below. Note that Mock A and B have a relatively even distribution of 11-14 organisms, while Mock C is intentially skewed in composition with the majority of the community comprised of Akkermansia muciniphila. Numbers in the table below indicate relative abundance of DNA add to make each mock community.

Contact us is you’d like a custom built mock community of veterinary organisms to suit your needs.
