Healthy Human Microbiota for Asia
The Asia Microbiota Bank is a social enterprise providing an unmet need for the citizens of Hong Kong and greater Asia. We are opening access to the quickly emerging field of microbiome therapy to patients, researchers and institutions in Asia by supplying safe access to human microbiota transfer, also known as fecal microbiota transplant.
Announcement from February, 2020: The Asia Microbiota Bank has closed down operations temporarily due to the risk of Covid-19. AMB has not experienced any Covid-19 infection. This operational closing is a precautionary measure.
The Asia Microbiota Bank is the first commercial stool bank in Asia collecting human gut microbiota from healthy human donors.
