Discovery of an S. aureus-pacifying Microbial Ensemble via Massively Parallel Measurement of 6 Million Microbial Interactions

Time: 10:45 am
day: Conference Day Two


  • With its groundbreaking discovery platform, kChip, which produces and measures half a million defined microbial combinations each day, Concerto identifies microbes most likely to work together as disease treatments
  • Using kChip to measure >6 million combinations of skin microbes and discover a beneficial microbial community, “Ensemble No.2”
  • We subsequently showed that Ensemble No.2 suppresses S. aureus growth and virulence on a preclinical skin model. We’re now developing Ensemble No.2 as a topical treatment for S. aureus-driven conditions such as atopic dermatitis
