$399 uBiome Five Site Kit

The uBiome sequencing kit lets you explore the bacteria that live in and on your body.

Most of these bacteria are friendly. They are more scared of you than you are of them!  

With a uBiome five site kit, you can explore:

  • What bacteria live in and on your body
  • The full taxonomic classification of the bacteria and their abundance in five sites on your body sites
  • How your bacteria compare to different types of people.
In addition to getting your own data, your sample helps thousands of citizen scientists to advance the science of the microbiome.

How it works


Sample your bacteria

We'll send you a home sampling kit that takes less than 2 minutes to use (and is not gross). It's super easy!


Cutting Edge DNA Sequencing

Our lab uses cutting-edge DNA sequencing to identify your bacteria using science from Harvard, Stanford, and UCSF.


Be a citizen scientist

Explore your inner world. What's in your gut? Is it Streptoccus? Clostridia? The elusive Marvinbryantia?
