Oops, I spilled my coffee on my collection device. Now what? Don’t panic, these things happen. We’ve included two BioCollectors in your kit in the event of a collection casualty!
Seriously, I have to collect a poop sample? Don’t worry, it’s pretty simple. Easy step-by-step instructions will be included in your kit. If you’re more of a techy type, you’ll also be able to access instructions online.
What happens to my microbiome sample once you receive it? When we receive your microbiome sample, we will divide it into many small pieces then freeze it in tubes until a scientist buys it to do their cutting edge research.
How much money can I make by investing my poop in The BioCollective? As research in the microbiome continues to grow, we expect that there will be increased demand by scientists for microbiome samples. At this time, we can’t promise just how big the demand will be, but you can expect to receive 10% of revenue from sales generated from your sample which will occur over time. We expect an average poop will produce 80 smaller samples for research.
How can I stay connected with The BioCollective and find out about research progress? When you become a member of The BioCollective, you will automatically receive periodic updates about new research and discoveries (unless you choose to opt out of this communication). Coming soon: We’ll also have a new fancy dashboard to keep track of your information.
