Critical Evaluation of Faecal Microbiome Preservation using Metagenomic Analysis

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Alena PribylThe Organizing Committee of Targeting Microbiota 2021 Congress is honored to announce the particpation of  Dr. Alena Pribyl from Microba, USA.

Dr. Pribyl will present their recent investigation on "Critical Evaluation of Faecal Microbiome Preservation using Metagenomic Analysis".

Additionally, she recently published a related article in Nature about their study.

Dr. Pribyl demonstrates that accurate preservation of faecal samples is critical as more studies seek to use the gut microbiome to identify biomarkers of disease. In her research, she undertakes an in-depth evaluation of faecal preservation methods using shotgun metagenomics to identify the best methods for use at room temperature. These methods included RNALater, OMNIGene-GUT, a dry BBL swab, LifeGuard, and a novel method for preserving faecal samples, a Copan FLOQSwab in an active drying tube (FLOQSwab-ADT). Along with her team, she further evaluated the best performing method, the FLOQSwab-ADT, at various temperatures to determine its range of use and found it maintained its performance across all temperatures.
