In a recently published white paper, DNA Genotek researchers utilized the OMNIgene•GUT system (OM-200 and OMR-200)—an all-in-one system for fecal self-collection and stabilization of microbial DNA—with pediatric samples for gut microbiome profiling. From this study, the researchers identified three key reasons why the OMNIgene•GUT system is ideal for pediatric gut microbiome profiling:   ..read more

From donor to data, samples begin their journey to powering microbiome research when the donor captures their microbiome under the specific conditions of their health, diet and exposures. After this, the sample will be delivered to laboratory facilities to integrate with potentially hundreds or thousands of other donor samples and the data generated from processing these samples analyzed ..read more

The scoop on poop: How much is enough sample?

Stool collection is a sensitive, but necessary, topic in microbiome studies; as gut microbiome research transitions to large population-based studies, standardized fecal sample collection methods are needed for higher quality samples and a better donor experience. With the potential for undesirable temperature fluctuation, freeze-thaw cycles, extraction delays and contamination, sample collection and transportation has a high probability of introducing bias and error into microbiome studies. As each sample integrates with hundreds of other samples, it is key that researchers have confidence i ..read more

Multiomics in microbiome studies: Enabling research on new therapies and treatments

If you’ve attended recent conferences focused on life sciences, you might have heard the phrase “multiomics brings together all the puzzle pieces,” or something similar. More research has begun to adopt this new approach of bringing together multiple “omes” in a study to see a better picture than if you only had one “ome.” In April 2021, Diversigen’s Product Manager Dr. Carlos Merino hosted a webinar with guest speakers Diversigen’s Dr. Tonya Ward, Metabolon’s Dr. Greg Michelotti, and Stanford University’s Dr. Nima Aghaeepour. They shared their experiences on combining multiomic data within t ..read more
