The microbiome is revealed as one of the most important means in the study of a person’s body.It does not matter whether it is saliva, faeces, soil samples or bacteria. In all cases the importance of the microbiome is fundamental in the detection of diseases and in the configuration of various treatments. And the microbiome is fundamental to the proper functioning of our body.
It should be borne in mind that when we talk about microbiome we are referring to all the microorganisms and their genetic material. Microorganisms found throughout the body, and not just in the skin, intestine or mucous surfaces, as has traditionally been believed. We now know that it is also found in the tract, genitourinary, oral cavity, nasopharynx, and respiratory tract.
This is a broad concept with which we are referring to the whole habitat and not just the individuals that form it. This includes, for example, all microbial communities, their genes and metabolites, as well as environmental conditions found around each of the locations.
The importance of the microbiome in human health
His study provides important data about the person such as the type of diet he or she follows, the environmental factors to which he is exposed, the hygiene he maintains, etc. And is that they participate, for example, in actions as important and decisive of our body as are the following: the transformation of non-digestible foods into absorbable metabolites, in the synthesis of essential vitamins, in the elimination of toxic compounds, in the regulation of the immune system or in the strengthening of the intestinal barrier.
In addition, the nature of our microbiome evolves with us. The way we generate it is very complex but also through very different itineraries. One of them is our diet (determining in the formation of metabolites produced by gut bacteria that enter the bloodstream by absorption and enterohepatic circulation).
The formation of this microbiome is essential, for example, to control the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant actions of our body, for the regulation of the function of bowel barrier and for the production of vitamins and energy sources.
Hence, its study through faeces, saliva, crops or any other means is of vital importance in current medicine, an area in which it is intended to anticipate the onset of diseases and is refined in diagnoses and treatments.
In Durviz we are aware of the benefits of studying the human microbiome in today’s medicine, hence we have a large number of elements with which we can develop it properly. And always with a very small error rate. And it is that a fundamental part of the success or failure of this scientific procedure lies in the methodology that is applied. A well-designed working methodology is needed to carry out the collection of both samples and data related to each of the samples obtained. So that as much information as possible can be extracted.
To achieve this in Durviz we have a wide variety of materials with which we can perform analysis of microbiome in faeces, saliva, soil or bacterial culture. Sample of this are:
So, if in your laboratory you have clear the importance of the microbiome for people’s health, come to Durviz and you will find the best material on the market to develop your samples and extract data about it.
