The future is tiny

We use the microbial life of buildings and objects to solve complex problems in a whole new way.

Microbial life is all around us. Trillions of viruses, bacteria and fungi fill every building and coat every surface in the world.

These microbes tell stories – like where they really came from, or whether the air is truly healthy and safe to breathe.
