VIDEO: Microbiome wipe aims to simplify, encourage at-home gut health testing

In this Healio video exclusive, Nathan Price, PhD, chief scientific officer at Thorne HealthTech, discusses the development of a new microbiome wipe that could change the landscape of at-home gut health testing.According to Price, an existing barrier for at-home testing has been the stool collection process, which involves transferring a fecal sample into a vile. Seeking an easier way to collect the sample, Price and his team developed a polymer-based wipe.“You can do a simple wipe, drop it in a vile, close it, shake it and it biodegrades away in about 10 seconds,” he said. “ThenRead More
