Sample one site: your gut!
From just your gut sample, you get a comprehensive picture of how your microbiome compares to other lifestyles.
The best starter kit for curious beginners.
An estimated 500 - 1,000 species of bacteria live in the human gut. Get the breakdown of what yours are down to the genus level.
How well does your gut metabolize caffeine? How about carbohydrates? Our NEW functionality tab lets you compare 109 different functions of your gut, and how they stack up against others.
If you’re thinking of trying something new – a new diet, probiotics, or anything else – get a “before” picture of your microbiome to compare with your “after”, and see what has changed.
Find out how you're different. Is your microbiome more like a vegan's or a heavy drinker's? Are your bacteria more or less diverse than other people of your gender? See how you measure up.
We give you the data, what will you do with it? Team up with uBiome to research the microbiome, and discover something new.
Every day, we are learning more about the human microbiome, and we hope to have many discoveries to share as we go. It’s a vast new frontier of scientific research. Thank you for being part of it with us!
After ordering, weíll send your kit straight to you! Collect your samples with a quick swab
of the site (or sites), and mail it back to us in the provided prepaid envelope.
Your samples will travel to our office in San Francisco, where theyíll be run through our state-of-the-art DNA sequencing lab. Expect to get your results back 4-6 weeks after we receive your sample.
You will then receive access to a personal dashboard (app.ubiome.com) which breaks down the types and functions of bacteria found in your sample.
Here is where you can see your diversity score as well as learn, explore, and compare everything related to your bacteria.
