Sample Handling Guidelines

Sample Handling Guidelines

Our team has worked with customers around the world to develop donor-friendly, reproducible workflows. The guidelines below help to ensure a snapshot of your sample is taken at time of collection, and maintained during transport to, and storage at, Microbiome Insights. 

Please note that at Microbiome Insights we strive to be interoperable with devices and technologies. The documents below outline certain tools we have worked with, but are continually growing our repertoire. If there is a specific method you would like us to work with, please email us at to discuss.

For samples that will be pre-plated please read through the Plating Template document carefully and make sure to consult with Microbiome Insights before plating - this method is not suitable for all workflows.
