Who we are
The Bione Platform is operated by Bione Ventures Private Limited trading as Bione (“Bione”). Bione is India's 1st consumer Microbiome & Genetic testing organisation. Bione offers Longevity, Longevity Plus kit for genetic testing & MyMicrobiome for gut biome testing to our customers. Your DNA data is stored in our secure platform Bione gVault.

Once potential genetic features are revealed, via our personalised DNA-testing system, you can make lifestyle choices which allow you to truly take proactive control of your healthy future.
