PLACING AN ORDER

Over 800 healthcare institutions across all 50 U.S. states and 6 countries have joined our clinical network. Here, you'll find information about registering your practice or medical facility, as well as ordering material, shipping, and invoicing.

    • Prior to fulfilling your practice or medical facility's first order, you must send a Clinical Partner Registration Form to our Clinical Outreach Team at info@openbiome.org (preferred), or fax to 617-575-2201. We must have an account on record for every location to which we ship, including individual facilities within the same health system.

      Once you submit the Registration Form, you will be issued a partner ID number corresponding to your account. If you are not sure if your facility has registered, or if you have forgotten your partner ID, write to info@openbiome.org.

      New Vendor Forms: Please send new vendor forms to info@openbiome.org or by fax to 617-575-2201.

      Contracting & Purchase Agreements: OpenBiome is happy to discuss entering into a purchasing contract with your facility or health system. Please contact our Outreach Team at 617-575-2201, option 3.
    • Registered partners may submit either a purchase order or an OpenBiome Order Form to orders@openbiome.org or by fax to 617-575-2201. We are unable to accept orders over the phone. If you submit a purchase order, please include your email address and phone number so that we may send you an order confirmation.

      We recommend ordering at least 5 units to reduce shipping costs and ensure availability for immediate clinical need. No patient information should be submitted with orders.

      Note: Prior to a facility's first order of capsules, an orientation with the treating physician is required to review the unique clinical considerations of encapsulated oral FMT administration. Please contact our Clinical Outreach team by phone at 617-575-2201 or email at info@openbiome.org to arrange this orientation.

      Checking the status of your order: An order confirmation email will be sent to the purchaser within 1 business day of receipt. Similarly, a shipment confirmation email including a tracking number will be sent the day before scheduled delivery. If you do not receive one of these confirmation emails, please write to orders@openbiome.org or call 617-575-2201, option 2.

    • Shipping terms: Our shipping terms are FOB: Destination, Prepaid & Add. We do not bill 3rd party.

      Delivery service: Material is shipped via UPS Next Day Air on dry ice in a temperature-monitored container to validate cold chain. For more information, please see our Storage Controls & Material Specifications document.

      Note: We urge our clinical partners to order material well in advance of any scheduled treatments and to store the material locally to avoid delays. Storing multiple units onsite at your facility is the best way to ensure availability for immediate patient needs, while also reducing shipping fees. We recommend a minimum order size of 5 units, and offer free shipping and handling on order of 10 units or more.
