We harness the human microbiome by collecting human stool, which contains the microbes we need to make our drug therapy for our patients. Our MRT™ drug platform is delivering healthy, live, human-derived microbes into a sick patient’s intestinal track to treat disease.

How to Become a Donor
First, persons interested in joining our program will need to answer a quick, 10 question multiple choice pre-screening survey to determine if you may be eligible. For those eligible, you will then need to enter your name and contact information so one of our donor program coordinators can contact you.
Note: You are only allowed to take this survey one time.
No! We try to make it as simple as possible for you to come in and provide your donation and be on your way. No appointments necessary!
Can I bring my donation with me?
No. Our donors must use the restrooms at our facility to donate. This ensures that a donation is traceable to a specific trained, screened, and qualified donor.
What is involved with stool and blood testing?
The material needed for stool testing is taken from a donor’s regular donations. Easy!
Blood testing is scheduled for donors approximately every 6 weeks. The donor must be able to visit the Rebiotix facility at the regularly scheduled blood test date. A small amount of blood is drawn by a professional phlebotomist for testing purposes.
What sort of health screening is there?
Besides the blood and stool testing, donors must answer initial health history questions and ongoing health questions to ensure they are eligible to donate.
