Clinical Microbiomics CHAMP Microbiome Profiler

Copenhagen-based firm Clinical Microbiomics this week introduced the Clinical Microbiomics Human Microbiome Profiler 2.0 (CHAMP), which was built using the company's database of more than 400,000 metagenome assembled genomes collected across nine body sites including the gut, vagina, skin, and mouth. The profiling tool uses the company's proprietary algorithm calibrated across thousands od analyzed samples. In internal benchmarking experiments, CHAMP outperformed MetaPhlAn4 with a 16 percent increase in sensitivity across various human body sites, the company said. It also showed a 400-fold lower false detection signal compared to competing profilers such as MetaPhlAn4, Centrifuge, Kraken, and Bracken, the firm said
