1

Your analysis kit

Your myBioma package includes an analysis kit with instructions, a sample container with a preservative liquid, a stool catcher for deep cleaners and a prepaid return envelope.

2

The stool collection

You can take a stool sample comfortably and discreetly from home. After you have taken the sample and activated it (via the myBiomaApp or on the homepage), send it back to us with the prepaid return envelope.

3

The analysis

As soon as we receive your sample, it is processed in our partner laboratory and analysed using the latest 16S-Next-Generation-DNA-Sequencing methods.This analysis is very complex and hence takes about 4-6 weeks.

4

Your microbiome report

You will receive your personal microbiome report in the app and/or as PDF. Find out more about the content and format of the report shown below.

To know what is going on

With the myBioma microbiome analysis, all bacteria in your stool are examined using Next-Generation-DNA-Sequencing. You will receive your comprehensive report and find out how the bacteria affect your health and also how you can improve your quality of life. The report is structured as follows.

Microbial composition
  • Overview of all bacteria
  • Species richness
  • Diversity
  • Species equality
  • Probiotic bacteria

Find out how different and unique your microbiome is

Nutrition and food conversion
  • Enterotype
  • Caloric intake
  • Metabolism

Find out the effects your gut bacteria have on your food intake

Health
  • Leaky gut
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Intestinal-brain axis
  • Intestinal-heart axis
  • Intestinal-liver axis
  • Intestinal-skin axis

Find out potential symptoms and health conditions your bacteria may be associated with

Improvement suggestions

Based on your results, you will receive personalised suggestions for improvement to optimise your microbial health and overall well-being.

About the test

The innovation lies in the unique linkage of DNA sequencing with a growing knowledge base on the interactions of the microbiome with the human organism.

Customer stories

You are in best company

The analysis kit is suitable for anyone who not only wants to treat symptoms but also get to the bottom of them. A scientifically based evaluation of the microbiome with comprehensive explanations, individual nutritional recommendations and helpful tips for your own well-being - there is no greater declaration of love to your own intestine and thus to yourself.

Nicola Grzanna, Nutritional Therapist @holistic.nutrition.therapy

They say so inside so outside. And since all diseases start in the gut, it is important to take care of yourself and be in harmony with body mind and soul. A good start is a gut microbiome analysis test from myBioma.

Petra, Influencerin @petroula.x

The microbiome analysis of mybioma has helped me to successfully change my diet, so that in addition to my physical condition, my mental condition (keyword: 'gut brain') has changed very positively!

We keep tight

Everyone deserves a safe, private place to explore and understand their microbiome. We think it is important that you can understand how we handle your data, which is why we designed myBioma and the myBioma analysis with the highest possible degree of privacy. Here is an overview of the information we collect, how it is used and when it is shared.

This information
we collect

When you use our platform, we collect personal data, such as your name, your email address and information about web behavior (e.g. your IP address). We collect genetic and lifestyle information through the stool sample and the survey results that you provide to us.

This is how we save your
data

Your personal data is stored in a high security data center in Vienna (AT). Your personal data will be assigned an identification number for identification and customer service.

Encryption

myBioma uses industry-standard security measures to encrypt sensitive personal data at rest. myBioma also uses HTTPS by default to encrypt all data in transit.

How we treat your research-
data confidentially

Your genetic and lifestyle information will be stripped of any personal identification data and transferred to our research environment, where it will be stored with your survey response data. This data is only collected in order to make it available to science and to further develop our own algorithms.

Security measures
in our systems

myBioma believes that genetic information and the systems used to protect it deserve the highest level of security. Therefore, myBioma uses software, hardware and physical security measures to protect the computers on which customer data is stored. We use robust authentication methods to access our systems.

It is important to note that myBioma cannot protect your data if you share it with others. In addition, despite the application of the latest technical and industry-specific guidelines to protect your data, it is never possible to give a full guarantee against security breaches.

That’s true. However, the analysis at your GP is usually based on stool cultures. Such cultures are one of the oldest analysis methods (older than 200 years) and scientifically insignificant inaccurate in the qualitative and quantitative detection of different bacteria. Such tests cannot provide any information about the balance or the overall condition of the gut microbiome.

On the other hand, myBioma can detect more than 1000 different types of bacteria using Next-Generation-DNA-Sequencing and also gives information about the functions of bacteria. Due to the complexity of oft he method, the analysis is very cost-intensive.

The analysis is based on Next-Generation-DNA-Sequencing. This is the most modern method for DNA determination. We use this method to analyse the DNA of your bacteria. This tells us which bacteria are in your stool sample, how much of it and also how well they metabolize, for example: sugar.

Immediately after your order, we will send the kit to your home. After taking the stool sample, you drop the envelope with the tube into the next mailbox. As soon as it arrives at ours we extract the DNA and prepare the sample for sequencing. Afterwards the sample has to be processed by us using bioinformatics, which will provide you with a clear and detailed report.

Our aim is to constantly reduce the time needed for analysis. However, because the analysis is so time-consuming and complex, you should allow 4-6 weeks until you receive your results.

Both options make sense! A gut microbiome analysis is a snapshot and therefore can tell you a lot about the current status of your intestinal health and general well-being. An unhealthy lifestyle and diet can lead to intestinal complaints in the long term.
An analysis of the gut microbiome, if you have complaints, is therefore definitely useful. Even if you have no symptoms, a well-founded gut microbiome analysis can help you to explore and optimise your intestinal health.
The intestinal microbiome changes every few months, so a follow-up test is advisable to identify changes.

Our team will be happy to answer your questions.
