- Donor screening and stool collection: The primary focus of donor screening is to increase the safety of FMT by excluding known pathogens. Donor screening is designed to minimize the risk of transmitting potentially infectious diseases or contagious traits from donor to recipient. To determine a donor’s health, various types of screening are performed, including health and wellness questionnaires, blood testing, and stool testing. Generally, most potential donors are excluded during initial screening, and samples and donors are regularly tested to reduce risks.
- Manufacturing process: At Novel Biome, stool is processed in our state-of-the-art microbiome laboratory, which follows all regulatory guidelines and has stringent policies and Standard Operating Procedures.
- Storage and administration: All our finished products are in a temperature controlled environment. All our FMT products, capsules, dried powder, colonoscopy and enemas are freeze-dried, so they can be transported without being frozen and stored long-term at 4 degrees Celsius. Novel Biome is currently performing long-term stability tests in-house to ensure the best storage conditions are used to preserve the FMT products.
