Kits are here!

We here at uBiome have some great news to share with all of you – our kits are finally complete! Not only that, but they look absolutely stunning, if we do say so ourselves. We are thrilled to be able to announce this to all of you, and can’t wait to hear all of your reactions when you get these great kits in your mailbox. As Bill Nye the Science Guy says…Science Rules!

I know that you’re really anxious to receive your kits, but we are doing a slow, controlled launch over the next six weeks, with a lot of testing to make sure that we provide the best experience possible for everyone. You will be contacted if you are part of our initial tests. If not, please sit tight. Your kits will arrive as soon as possible.

We started the first kits to initial paying customers in the past few days, and will ramp up our shipping rate week by week. It may take a bit for your to receive your kit because we are shipping them out in stages and checking with our users to make sure that they have a good experience with the kit instructions, website, and so forth. We appreciate your patience as we work to get these kits to you, and look forward to receiving your samples soon!

The kit comes complete with collection swabs, collection tubes, a handy vial holder to keep the tube steady, and instructions on how to collect your samples. We want to make it as easy as possible to be a part of science!

While our kits are remarkably user-friendly, if you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact us. uBiome is here to help you, the citizen scientist, and we are available to discuss any part of the kit with you. For the fastest response, we recommend contacting us at

Yours in flora,

the uBiome team
