Microbiota storage

Storage of intestinal microbiota under strict privacy and quality control.

We offer the possibility to isolate and store your intestinal microbiota in viable conditions, under the highest standards of quality and privacy, to be used in the future to restore your intestinal microbiota in case of dysbiosis.

The intestinal microbiota is a complex microbial community that live with and inside us (inhabit our gastrointestinal tract) and carries out many functions such as protection against pathogens, modulation of the immune system and production of essential components. The alteration of the microbiota (dysbiosis) has been associated with several illnesses, C. difficile infection, IBD, Crohn’s disease, and medical treatments like antibiotic therapy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy.

If you store your microbiota when you are healthy, you will be able to use it in the future to restore your altered intestinal microbiota. Do not get microbiota from other donors, keep yours storage under optimized conditions to use whenever is need it.
