The microbiota analysis is for anyone who wants to know the bacterial composition of their microbiota.
The collection can be carried out at any time. However, it is recommended to perform the analysis at least one month after any treatment (antibiotics, probiotics,…). However, in the case of a chronic treatment that cannot be interrupted, the analysis can be carried out without stopping the treatment.
As soon as we receive your sample at the laboratory, the time needed to analyse your microbiota is 1 month. You will be able to follow the progress of your analysis in real time on your iBiote space.
The stabilising solution in the collection tube ensures that the sample is stored in good conditions at room temperature. Once the stool has been collected and identified, simply close the sample tube (brown cap) and place it in the transport tube (yellow cap) provided for this purpose.
Sampling conditions :
Failure to comply with this sampling rule may result in the analysis being cancelled.
There are several ways to do this :
If you have not informed a referring doctor, you can contact a nutritionist, internist or general practitioner.
The interpretation of the microbiota takes into account your lifestyle habits, medical history (birth, breastfeeding, pathologies, treatments…) as well as other factors that can influence the microbiota such as: age, sex, BMI,… or your consumption habits (diet).
