This article presents the implementation of a numerical solution of bioconvective nanofluid flow. The boundary layer flow (BLF) towards a vertical exponentially stretching plate with combination of heat and mass transfer rate in tangent hyperbolic nanofluid containing microorganisms. We have introduced zero mass flux condition to achieve physically realistic outcomes. Analysis is conducted with magnetic field phenomenon. By using similarity variables, the partial differential equation which governs the said model was converted into a nonlinear ordinary differential equation, and numerical results are achieved by applying the shooting technique. The paper describes and addresses all numerical outcomes, such as for the Skin friction coefficients (SFC), local density of motile microorganisams (LDMM) and the local number Nusselt (LNN). Furthermore, the effects of the buoyancy force number, bioconvection Lewis parameter, bioconvection Rayleigh number, bioconvection Pecelt parameter, thermophoresis and Brownian motion are discussed. The outcomes of the study ensure that the stretched surface has a unique solution: as Nr (Lb) and Rb (Pe) increase, the drag force (mass transfer rate) increases respectively. Furthermore, for least values of Nb and all the values of Nt under consideration the rate of heat transfer upsurges. The data of SFC, LNN, and LDMM have been tested utilizing various statistical models, and it is noted that data sets for SFC and LDMM fit the Weibull model for different values of Nr and Lb respectively. On the other hand, Frechet distribution fits well for LNN data set for various values of Nt.
