Helping you help patients.

Understand your patient’s condition with greater precision.

SmartJane™ uses advanced DNA sequencing technology to accurately identify dozens of important species and genera.

SmartJane screens for multiple conditions. uBiome’s broad approach and pinpoint accuracy checks a range of important micro-organisms associated with:

HPV (Human papillomavirus)

UTIs (Urinary tract infections)

BV (Bacterial vaginosis)

STIs (Sexually transmitted infections)

Vaginal flora imbalance


The SmartJane test is not intended to replace routine exams with a healthcare provider. Patients still need to see their healthcare provider for their regular health maintenance exams and standard of care cervical cancer screening.

  • 1Detects high- and low-risk HPV strains

    SmartJane tests for high-risk HPV, the leading cause of cervical cancer and precancerous cervical lesions (Audirac-Chalifour et al., 2016, Lee et al., 2013). We detect the two most common strains (HPV-16 and HPV-18), as well as twelve additional strains. SmartJane also tests for low-risk HPV, which is associated with genital warts.

  • 2Screens for STIs

    SmartJane also screens for four STIs: gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and mycoplasma genitalium with the same test (Edwards and Apicella, 2004, Lane and Decker, 2016).

  • 3Reveals flora imbalance

    SmartJane can tell your patient about her vaginal flora balance. An imbalance can lead to common and bothersome conditions such as bacterial vaginosis (BV), a common vaginal complaint. (Onderdonk et al., 2016, Srinivasan et al., 2012).

  • 4Identifies biological co-factors

    Certain bacteria are associated with a greater risk of HPV infection (Mitra et al., 2016, Mitra et al., 2015). SmartJane provides information on these unique co-factors and how they relate to your sample.

Protecting your privacy

Your privacy is our top priority. To ensure the confidentiality of your data and your results, we use multiple layers of encryption and the highest levels of computer security. You control your data, and can choose whether or not you consent to having your data anonymized and aggregated into uBiome research studies.

Scientific research

Recent partnerships have included those with 1,000 researchers from around the world at institutions such as Harvard, Stanford, UCSF, National University of Singapore, and University College London.


uBiome’s social mission

uBiome’s mission is to advance the science of the microbiome and make it useful to people. Through our research with thousands of citizen scientists and dozens of universities, including Harvard, Stanford, UCSF and others, we have gathered millions of data points and built a set of tools that have enabled us to create clinical tests for healthcare providers and patients.

For people

We are committed to empowering people to understand and take greater control of their health. Through our uBiome Explorer kits and our microbiome database – the largest in the world – we give people access to tools to better understand the microbiome.

For science

To advance the science of the microbiome, we work with over 1,000 researchers from around the world at institutions such as Harvard, Stanford, UCSF, University College London, and the National University of Singapore.

For the world

We also work with over 150,000 citizen scientists in more than 80 countries. Our projects include large-scale citizen scientist studies, partnerships with researchers and organizations, and support for underfunded scientific discovery via our $1 million Microbiome Impact Grant Initiative (as part of the White House National Microbiome Initiative).
