The way samples are collected is critical to any successful microbiome research. Metagenomics can be susceptible to the manner in which samples are obtained and transmitted, especially when it comes to environmental conditions. Individual differences in each study will determine how best to proceed based on the study’s objective, sample type, study procedure, and setting.

- Logistical assistance to all of our customers
- Off-the-shelf sample collection kits
