New Real-Time Quantitative PCR Procedure for Quantification of Bifidobacteria in Human Fecal Samples.

Stomacher® 400 used to prepare faeces samples for comparative study of fluorescent in situ hybridization and the current gold standard for intestinal microbiota quantification. In general, a good correlation between the two methods was observed. Continue reading

Genotoxic activity in human faecal water and the role of bile acids: a study using the alkaline comet assay

Faecal samples were collected and kept on ice before processing. Samples
were homogenized in a stomacher for 2 minutes in a Stomacher® 400.

The results of the present study indicate that the comet assay provides a powerful tool to investigate the genotoxicity of faecal water samples in a human colonic tumour cell line.
