Many of us were able to get in on the previous stool sampling by uBiome.

Now they are offering the Sniffle-Ome kit for free.

Enter this code at checkout

STUDYSNIFFLES


No credit card is needed.

Many of us spend the winter in a state of sniffles, whether from cold or flu or something else. Participate to get your own microbiome results and help us learn about how your sniffles relate to your microbiome.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Anyone can participate.

(For those under 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign the parental research consent form online when when activating your kit at explorer.ubiome.com.)

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

Follow the link below and use the code STUDYSNIFFLES at checkout to order your free at-home Sniffle sample kit. Keep your kit at home so it's ready to go if you feel a cold or flu coming on. Once you collect your sample, register your kit, complete a short survey and return your sample to our lab in the prepaid mailer.

WHAT IS A COLLECTION KIT?

Your sample collection kit will include everything you need to collect your sample quickly and easily at home. All you need to do is lightly swab two sites (1) the inside of your nose and (2) the back of your throat. We will provide clear instructions for each site to guide you.

CAN I PARTICIPATE IF I DON'T HAVE THE SNIFFLES?

This product is for people who have either a stuffy nose or cold or flu symptoms (which may not include a stuffy nose). If you have a chronic stuffy nose, you can still participate. Just sample once and answer the survey once.

WHEN DO I COLLECT MY SAMPLE?

It's time to collect your sample...

When your nose is stuffed up or runny
Or if you have at least two of the following cold or flu symptoms:
Sore throat
Cough
Fever
Body or muscle aches
Headache
Fatigue or weakness
Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea

So they do not actually provide you any feedback on your snot? Or is that included in the results in lament's terms..

They analyze your biome and give you some information. It is still an emerging science and more interesting than actionable at this point. However, I found the stool sample results to be interesting.

Some decent conversation over at Reddit, though a bit dated. Different sampling, but probably the same idea.

I think there's mold in my house and I'm breathing it. Do you think they test for mold?
