The microbiome studies and specially the isolation and use of intestinal microorganisms, requires the maintenance of their viability for further applications. The majority of the intestinal microbes are anaerobic and the presence of oxygen drastically reduces their viability.

GutAlive® was design to keep the anaerobic conditions of stool samples during the process of sample collection and transport, creating the desire environment for the intestinal microbes to survive. Moreover, the use of GutAlive to collect samples contributes to normalize protocols and procedures in stool collection without the need to freeze samples.

GutAlive® is commercially available as a kit that contains all the necessary components to collect and ship the stool sample.
