The MicroCollect™ Stool Collection and Preservation Device Products are designed for collecting and preserving microbiome profiles from stool samples. This product includes a collection tube, a sampling swab/spoon attached to the lid, nitrile gloves, and collection paper. Stool collection can be done by using the swab/spoon to transfer the stool into the collection and preservation tube. The stool sample should be submerged under the preservative. The collected stool sample can be stored and transported at ambient temperature for around 60 days or stored at -20°C or -80°C for a longer time.
This product is safe, non-invasive and affordable, and can profile unbiased, reproducible microbial community structures in the stool sample. High-quality microorganisms and DNA/RNA can be preserved and isolated. This product can be widely used in the department of endocrinology, infectious diseases and psychiatric disease analysis, downstream molecular biology experiments such as nucleic acid isolation, enzyme digestion, PCR, sequencing, etc. This product provides an easy solution for people to collect fecal samples independently at home or other places without any professional medical assistance. It is also the best choice for fecal sample storage, long-distance transportation, and submission for research or diagnosis.
