Basic Science Research with OpenBiome
In addition to our commitment to provide safe access to FMT, OpenBiome is here to partner with investigators to uncover the role of the gut microbiome in addressing unmet medical needs.
To support basic science research, OpenBiome has developed the Fecal Microbiota Preparation for Research applications (FMP-R), a microbiota preparation designed for researchers interested in developing biological tools from the bacteria found in human stool, including humanized animal models and biomarker screening methods. Furthermore, our Microbiome Metacommunity Standard (MMS) material may prove essential for researchers aiming to standardize and control sequencing runs and experiments.
We are actively working to catalyze this exciting and rapidly emerging field of science. In the sections below, you can learn more about ordering FMP-R or MMS material and working with OpenBiome to support your research goals. To place an order or inquiry, please review our Research Collaboration Guide for basic science reseachers and fill out our short Research Request Form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please expect significant lead times on any orders of basic science research material.
