Collection & Transport Media

Anaerobe Systems’ transport tubes are sterilized, poured, and packaged under anaerobic conditions (PRAS media). Our unique process prevents oxygen contamination or damage to the culture media during the manufacturing process. Reducing agents and visual oxygen indicators help prevent oxidation when adding a sample, and will indicate the portion of the medium still anaerobic.

BIOME-Preserve is a patent pending, first of its kind kit for collecting, transporting, and preserving anaerobic microbiome samples such as stool. It allows for easy self collection of a sample at home, room temperature transport for up to 5 days, and culture recovery of the majority of species present in the sample. BIOME-Preserve may also be directly frozen for long term storage. BIOME-Preserve is for research use only and has not been evaluated by the FDA for use in diagnosis or treatment of any disease in a clinical setting.

All transport media are stock items. Stock items will ship within 3 days of order,
but typically will ship out the same day for orders received before 2:00pm PST.

BIOME-Preserve Availability Update: Due to a supplier shortage of a critical component, BIOME-Preserve is currently unavailable. The estimated delivery date of the component is mid-February 2023. We anticipate product being available to ship the first week of March 2023, subject to change based on our ability to procure the component.
