Bloating, diarrhoea, constipation are common and yet we don’t discuss much about these gut issues with our family and friends. It can be embarrassing or disheartening. Many don’t consult doctors and yet let’s not forget that these indicators can spell out more serious issues such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome or GI conditions linked to diabetes, which has become a growing prevalent health issue in Singapore.
Do you know?
In a report by the International Diabetes Federation in 2015, Singapore was ranked as having the second-highest proportion of diabetics among developed nations. Many are unaware that they have the disease, and if left unchecked, nearly one million people in Singapore could have diabetes by 2050.
OSBIOME: Simple and Stress-free Self-test kit

The comprehensive test kit includes a Leak-proof stool collection tube and attached scoop with DNA stabiliser, Gloves, Flushable sample catcher, Sealable bag, Lab-grade DNA extraction and sequencing service, Polymailer for courier pickup for sample return.
Result Reporting and Recommendation
Upon receiving the test kit, the OSbiome app guides the user every step of the way from sampling of the stool to arranging for pick up.
Once samples are picked up (in discrete packaging) by an in-house courier service, these are sent to a laboratory for DNA sequencing centred around the relative abundance of bacteria living within the gut.
The data will then be analysed by OSbiome’s in-house AI to generate unique scores, covering 15 proprietary OSbiome scores, spanning across different facets of wellness from digestive, physical and mental wellness. The results will be displayed on the user’s app in an easy to understand format along with specific food, lifestyle and probiotic recommendations directly within 4-6 weeks of submission.
