Our goal is to expand access to FMT
To make fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) more widely available, OpenBiome provides clinicians with screened and ready-to-use fecal preparations. This service saves the time and hassle of processing fresh material from a unique donor for every procedure. It helps improve the safety, convenience and efficacy of FMT and lowers costs.
FMT is a powerful treatment option with fresh material from new donors. We hope to make this treatment even better with universal donors. By sharing the costs of screening and processing material from our team of donors across many treatments and preparing samples in advance of their use, we are able to follow more stringent quality and safety protocols than standard practices (1, 2). Through economy of scale, we are also able to save time and money for patients, doctors and hospitals.
