The Skin Deep Microbiome Project
This is the entry level kit, which will allow you to provide 1 skin sample at a single body site for microbiome profiling from our laboratory. This is baseline skin microbiome testing and will include 1 testing swab, sample questionnaire and sample/mailing instructions.
This is a discounted skin microbiome testing kit for 2 paired samples from the same individual; it contains two sterile swabs, and sample sheet questionnaire, and return label for sending samples back to the lab for profiling. This kit will allow a deeper comparative analysis of individual samples (over time or space).
You will receive an official Skin Deep: Skin Microbiome Project Pen
Shine the light on your skin microbiomes by going for this official Skin Deep keychain light and sticker.
A 4 sample kit (same household):
• Option 1- Two (2) human body samples (each location), taken at two (2) different times (either one (1) month from the initial baseline sample taken or two (2) months from initial sample). It will be necessary to refrigerate the first sample(s) taken until time to return all samples to the lab;
• Option 2- Two (2) human samples and 2 pet samples (two locations or same locations) using baseline sample and follow-up sample within two months after initial sample.
One Skin Deep III Kit (4 samples), either a Skin Deep pen, mouse pad or key chain light, PLUS a personal tour of the NSU Center of Excellence Molecular Genetics laboratory and lunch with the PI at a time of your choosing.
You will receive a signed “Thank You” letter from the Principal Investigator and Skin Deep Team for your kind donation to the project.
