Unveiling Sequential Bio’s New London Lab testing HQ


18th October 2022 - In an effort to keeping the entire testing process in-house, allowing for rigorous quality control, and meeting the demand of our European clients - today we announce the opening of our testing lab in London.

Sequential is proud to announce that it will open a European HQ, and testing lab site in White City, London. One key quality that makes Sequential stand out from its competitors is keeping the testing protocols and quantitative analysis in-house. This gives them the ability to ensure the processing, and targeting of microbiome markers for their clients is extremely high quality.

“Innovative R&D, and rigorous quality control on our lab testing and processes have always been front of mind at Sequential. By opening a lab in London, we’re responding to the demand from customers - whilst retaining control over our quality in testing.” - Dr Oliver Worsley, CEO/Co-Founder.

Adding to their testing labs in Singapore, and New York, in which they serve Singapore, Thailand, Australia, and the US markets. This enables faster turnaround time for European clients, as the demand for non-invasive molecular analysis of the skin reaches new heights in Europe.

Between 2018 - 2022, there have been over 34 microbiome deals (licensing and investments) made. With an average contract value of $257M, this has created over $2.3B of value in the gut and skin microbiome space. Europe is a significant player in the global microbiome field, expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.25% (between 2022-2028).
