Isolating live bacterial species can be a difficult process, often presenting a number of challenges. As a result, a large percentage of microbes are thought to be ‘unculturable’. However, it is increasingly being realized that many of these microbes can be cultured with the use of novel growth tools and methods.

We spoke to Dirk Löffert, Ph.D., CEO of Biomillenia, to learn how microbiome-on-a-chip technology can help overcome some of the challenges of live bacterial isolation and unlock the unculturable microbiome to benefit a range of applications.
