Microbiome analysis: before the start of your project
Before working on your project, we take time to discuss your study setup whenever possible before sampling your biological material dedicated to the analysis of microbiota. We advise on the relevant tissues to include, the number of samples and the study groups to plan for, in order to maximize the chances of concluding on your scientific questions.
Would you need help to write your grant application, we provide assistance when it comes to microbiota analysis expertise.
Thanks to our experience gained over hundreds of projects, we guide you in the inclusion of relevant standards at the sampling stage and during the analysis process in our lab so that you can show and demonstrate the reliability of your study results.
We advise on the best way to collect, store and ship your samples, wherever you are located in the world. We are also used to assist the importation of samples from animal origin from outside EU.
When the design of your microbiota analysis project is ready, we prepare the project submission file that summarizes all information needed to complete your project. What group comparisons should be made? What figures do you need?
Ready to start your microbiome study with Vaiomer?
We prepare with your team the reception of your samples in our lab, and we let you know when they arrive, safe and sound!
At the arrival of your samples, the reception procedure begins: we check all the tubes against the sample list and make sure it is complete. In case of missing sample, or improper labelling, we fix the details with you: we want to assure you can properly interpret the results we deliver.
Now, our lab team can start working on your valuable samples!
Your microbiome study is completed
While the lab work is under way, the scientist in charge of your project meets with the bioinformatic team to transmit your project details. The bioinformatics team prepares, then performs the analysis of the data generated by the lab.
Here we are! The report, data and images are ready to be delivered to you! You will be invited to a videoconference held by the scientific project manager. She/he will guide you through the data and results of your microbiome study and answer all your questions, would you be a microbiome expert or a beginner.
