  • At-home sampling method
  • Easy to use for participants
  • Simple logistics without cold chain
  • Leading community stabilisation
  • Reliable profiles of microbial community

    Dry-swab demonstrates better technical reproducibility than the commonly accepted best practice of flash-freezing.
  • Room-temperature preservation

    Innovative sampling technology robustly preserves species-level microbial profiles at room temperature for 4 weeks.
  • Non-invasive, easy to use swab

    Simple sample collection for high participant compliance, low risk of incorrect sampling, and no need for expensive cold chain management.
