The importance of the stool microbiome, soil, saliva or bacterial culture

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.

Kit Real de microbioma fecal

Real Kit of Faecal Microbiomes

In fact, it was developed to be applied on a wide range of  areas like for example: microbiome analysis, RFLP analysis, mutations or even the need to identify pathogens. 

Faecal micobiome Real Kit Features

A microbiome  is a group of microorganisms, generally simbiotic, that are part of every human, animal or plant. In case of the human being we are talking about thousands of microorganisms that live with us every day, in and out of our body. That is, of microbial communities, genes and metabolites that colonize our organism. 

In order to study them and get to understand them as a support for studying a disease and its behaviour or how to treat it, several tests are carried. One of this tests is the human faecal microbiome study. A test also carried on animals that helps to prevent a wide range of issues and get to know a great variety of diseases.

At present, this test is being considered as essential on the development of really important investigations, specially on those realtes with predictions of patological states as obesity, cancer or cardiobascular diseases, neurodegenerative or respiratory, where professionals are making significant progress.

But also to relate diseases with some of our life aspects, in the begginig more secondary aspects. For example, Finding out if certain oral cavity diseases such as gingivitis are related to preterm births or low weight on birth. Eventhough at present time its applications are being developed for more areas and they will continue expanding on this matter for the following years.

 To carry this faecal microbiome study, it is necessary to purify the microbial dna, otherwise the study of it could not be carried out from different faecal samples. An aspect that is done without problems with the use of the Kit that the Real brand has developed in this sense. A Kit owning the following features: 


  1. In an optimal way, it develops a lisis method with a combination of: heat, quimical and mechanical lisis using specific beads. What it pretends to obtain is the perfect homogeneization of the sample. What is translated into, an isolation of the dna of yeasts, fungi, Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. 
  2. Its a simple and easy process that uses Microspin columns. 
  3. It has been design in order to obtain an efficient and fast micronbiome dna purification from several faecal samples. 
  4. No phenol nor choloform is used on its operation; not for extraction neither for ethanol precipitation, what means a preservation of the sample to avoid biased results. 
  5. It has a great capacity. This kit allows us to work with up to 200mg of human faeces. A different amount in case of animal samples, where it is recommended the reduction of  sample size which is between 80 and 100 mg.

For all of the above, in Durviz, we offer the Real brand products to carry the study of faecal microbiomes. There is no other way to obtain the best results than using the best products from the best manufacturers. All of them can be found in Durviz in a simple click.  

Microbiology is responsible for the study of the microbiome

Microbiology is a science that is responsible for studying the role played by the microbiome. That is, the set of microorganisms that inhabit our intestine. And it is that, although it costs us to accept it, not all of us have the same microorganisms in this fundamental part of our organism. A set of beings called microbiota and that from newborns already influence factors in the development of our body.

It could be said that the microbiome, which is unique to each person, is decisive for the thousands of operations that take place inside our body. Hence, there are experts who consider it as one more organism of our perfect gear that is the human body.

Microbiome: Composition and care

The composition of the microbiome is varied and determined by DNA. Everything influences its development and composition, from the type of birth we have lived (vaginal or cesarean) or breastfeeding (whether natural or artificial) with which we were fed during the first weeks or months of our lives.
The main functions of the microbiome are the following:

1. It stimulates the immune system of our body, which strengthens its resistance to attack by pathogens.

2. Destroys the components of some foods that, at least in principle, are toxic or could be.

3. It helps us regulate the levels of cholesterol and glucose in our blood.

4. It helps us to synthesize some vitamins and some amino acids especially important for our body, such as B vitamins, or vitamin K.

5. Decomposes complex hydrates such as starch or fiber in the final part of the intestine. The fermentation of these non-digestible fibers leads to the production of fatty acids that the body uses as nutrients

6. It protects us against pathogenic organisms that can penetrate the body when eating, drinking, breathing, etc.

7. Avoid pathogenic bacteria proliferate in the large intestine.



There are many studies that are being developed around the microbiome. Many of them state, for example, that obese or overweight people have a higher proportion of pro-inflammatory bacteria and a smaller variety of microbiota, which causes greater resistance to insulin (which is directly related to their propensity to suffer diabetes).

Thus, diet plays a very important role to have a good microbiota. Hence, it is very important that it is varied and balanced. This translates, for example, into the fact that it must be integrated with prebiotic foods (those containing non-digestible or soluble fibers) found naturally in vegetables and fruits, as well as in whole grains or in nuts.

It is also important that people become aware of how important it is that we consume probiotic foods (those that contain live microorganisms). Foods of this type are yogurts, kefir or milk fermented with bifidobacteria or lactobacillus and supplements that can be found in many food stores to which we usually go.

All this will make our microbiome richer, stronger and more efficient when developing its functions. What it means to have better health and have less chance of suffering from colon cancer problems or similar pathologies.

In Durviz we have many elements with which you can carry out microbiology studies in your laboratory. Simply enter our online store and look for that which facilitates your research.

Analysis of the microbiome

Analysis of the microbiome incorporated in prevention, diagnosis and treatment strategies

The analysis of the microbiome is a method that is in constant development, and with which it is wanted to reach new useful applications for the human being. This is, at least, what emerges from the first report published by the Trends Observatory of Personalized Precision Medicine (MPP) of the Roche Institute Foundation as far as the microbiome is concerned.

A document that shows that the analysis of the microbiome is a job with which predictions can be made regarding pathological states, such as obesity, cancer, or cardiovascular, neurodegenerative or respiratory diseases. What is an important medical finding.

In this regard, it should be noted that the latest research in this field has yielded very interesting data that are being used to anticipate the appearance of more or less serious diseases. Even to be a predictive factor of the response to drugs, in the prognosis of the evolution of the disease, or to generate personalized treatments much more efficient.


Analysis of the microbiome and medicine

For those who do not know what the microbiome is, highlight that it is the set of microbial communities, genes and metabolites that colonize the organism of any human being. These are microbes that have a symbiotic and mutualistic behavior and are essential for its proper functioning. When we talk about a person’s microbiome we are referring to all the microorganisms that our body contains, including those found in the gastrointestinal tract, the genitourinary tract, the oral cavity, the nasopharynx, the respiratory tract and the skin.

Any alteration of a person’s microbiome can have very serious consequences for your body. In fact, it is currently considered that these alterations can cause different disorders, ranging from intestinal inflammatory diseases or colorectal cancer, to systemic diseases of metabolic type, allergic or diseases of the central nervous system, including neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or sclerosis. multiple.

What is the microbiome analysis for?

The realization of microbiome analysis has served, up to now, for example to know that certain diseases of the oral cavity, such as gingivitis, are related to premature births or to low birth weight; that the bacteria present in the feces of the babies in their first month of life, could indicate if that small or that small one will be asthmatic in the future; or that the bacteria found in saliva can be used as if they were markers for certain types of cancer. And this is just the tip of the iceberg as more and more complex applications are being made of the analysis of the microbiome as far as preventive medicine is concerned.

According to the report, in the recent future the microbiome will contribute to advance in the personalization of the approach to health and in regard to the disease in each of the patients. With all this, the effectiveness of the interventions will be increased, simultaneously reducing the adverse effects, as well as the costs of health care and contributing, therefore, to the configuration of personalized medical attention. What, in the words of some experts, will also mean to classify patients before their medical intervention; or as a predictor of response to treatments before they even begin to be delivered.

In Durviz you can find all kinds of products to perform microbiome analysis. A fact that will help you develop new research with which you can continue to grow. Especially as far as Precision Personalized Medicine is concerned. We have a wide catalog of products that will be used for the design and execution of each of the tests, and all this thanks to the supply that the most important companies in the sector make us periodically.
