Manufactured from a single well-homogenized fecal collection, 2 million uniform preps can support studies for years to come.

High Microbial Diversity

The fecal reference contains hundreds of microbial species including bacteria, fungi, and archaea, replicating the diversity of real stool.

Unrivaled Stability

The microbial profile of the fecal reference is protected from degradation and changes, guaranteeing a consistent reference point for your data. Six shotgun sequencing runs were performed revealing consistent and stable microbial profiles.

To facilitate increased accuracy of microbiome measurements and improve data reproducibility across labs, this product was developed to act as a single point of reference. In order to build a publicly available reference database, experts in the field are currently working together to characterize the fecal reference using various microbiome measurements. A platform for users to anonymously share, download, and compare characterization results against different applied methodologies is also in development.
