How can I complete my membership process?
Once you have received your microbiome analysis kit, you should first register your kit using the unique code written on the tube from https://app.enbiosis.com/registerkitcode. Then, fill in the questionnaire regarding your health status. After completing these steps, you will be ready to collect and send your sample.
How should I collect my sample?
You can easily collect your sample at home by following the given steps. First, place the analysis kit on a stable surface, ensuring that the tube is upright to prevent the liquid from spilling into the round compartment next to the sampling tube. Secondly, collect the stool sample, approximately the size of a lentil, directly from the toilet paper using the swab provided in the analysis kit. Then, insert the swab into the tube and stir for 1 minute or until the color of the liquid changes. Afterward, carefully remove the swab from the tube and dispose of it. Secure the lid of the tube tightly and insert it into the envelope included in the microbiome analysis kit.
How should I send my sample to the laboratory?
Once you have collected your sample and inserted it into the envelope included in the kit, you will be ready to ship it back to the laboratory. You can request a return label by sending an email to email@example.com and simply attach it to your sample. Then, you can send your sample to our laboratory free of charge.
What should I do if the liquid in the tube spills?
If there is a spillage of the liquid inside the sampling tube, you should immediately stop the sampling process. You can request a spare tube by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will my sample be damaged in shipping?
The stabilizer liquid inside the sampling tube is a special solution that eliminates microorganisms upon first contact with the sample and prevents fragmentation of the exposed microbial DNA. Thanks to this liquid, your sample will safely reach the laboratory without being affected by any conditions.
When will I recieve the results?
