CORAL® platform

Through its differentiating CORAL® platform, MRM Health develops Optimized Consortia, a novel class of microbial therapeutics which surpass the current microbiome approaches. Using a bioinformatics-guided in-human discovery engine, key therapeutic strains are identified and integrated into Optimized Consortia through its proprietary Microbiome Optimization Technology. The Company’s breakthrough GMP-compliant manufacturing technology allows to manufacture complete therapeutic consortia as a single Drug Substance.

Microbiome optimised consortia

With its impressive consortia optimization and manufacturing technology, MRM Health disrupts exactly there where others stumble.
