Our microbiome test
Secure processing of your data
The gut microbiome is a term describing the microorganisms that live in the intestinal tract, such as bacteria and fungi.
You test results will be available at your personal profile at My Unseen Bio. At this site, your results will be illustrated, and it will be possible to customize the display. You will receive an e-mail, when your results are ready.
Yes, it is possible to share your results with others. For instance, several of our users share their results with their dietician or doctor.
Principally, there are no physical limitations for children to take the test, but our groups of reference consist only of individual adults, and the results may therefore be affected by this because the microbiome differs between children and adults.
Unfortunately, our test cannot be used as a medical tool, but it will provide you with an insight of your gut microbiome, including any imbalances.
You will receive your results after 3-4 weeks. In this period, your test will be analysed in our laboratory, and your personal microbiome results will be created. You will receive an e-mail, when your results are ready.
You are always welcome to write us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are a Danish company located on Østerbro, and speak Danish, English and German.
No, we like to get an insight in your normal dietary patterns, so therefore we do not recommend that you change anything before taking the microbiome test. In some individual cases, if for instance you wish to track a specific diet, it might be relevant to change up your dietary patterns in advance.
For some, it feels “out of the comfort zone”, to do a stool test, but we have made the process very simple. When you receive the test, please follow the instructions that will easily guide you through the process.
The liquid in the test tube, ensures that the microorganisms do not get exposed to oxygen for long, and ensures that they stay in their natural condition.
No, you do not need to store the sample in the fridge. The liquid will keep the microorganisms in their natural state at room temperature.
No, you will receive a prepaid return envelope together with your test-kit. All you need to do is to take the test, place it in the return envelope, and send it back to us.
The liquid in the sample tube ensures that the microorganisms stay in their natural state in normal temperatures. If it is very hot or cold outside, we do recommend you to deliver your return envelope at your closest Postnord drop off point, instead of a postbox.
When we received your sample, you will get an e-mail. This might take up to a week, but most often just a few days.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to use our microbiome for dogs or other animals. Our quality control ensures that non-human samples are rejected.
