Taymount FMT Standard


The Taymount FMT Standard places safety, quality and care at the heart of everything we do.

We quarantine for safety

Our strict donor selection, screening and quarantine procedures protect patient safety.

  • We select – We only select donors with a healthy microbiome. Every donor receives dietary and lifestyle advice to optimise their gut health.
  • We screen – Our donors undertake regular screening. We test donated stools every month to ensure microbial quality. Every three months, we run blood tests to screen for a wide range of diseases including HIV and Hepatitis.
  • We quarantine – We never use fresh material. We quarantine all donated material at -80°C in our laboratory for at least 12 weeks to ensure no latent disease is present.
  • We release – We release donated material for FMT only when screening proves the quarantine period has been successfully cleared.
We only transplant microbial cells

We never use the whole stool. In the lab we extract gut flora (microbial cells) from donated stools to create FMT implants.

By removing food, mucus, biliary waste, skin cells, blood cell debris, hormones and other toxins from donor material we avoid potential side effects.

For example, a woman with naturally high testosterone levels will not receive additional male hormones via our Gut Flora Transplants (FMT), and therefore avoids the risk of hormonal in-balance.

The UK Human Tissue Authority (HTA) has excluded our FMT implants from HTA regulation because our process leaves it highly unlikely that any intact host human cells remain in the extracted microbial implant.

We use 10 different donors per program

A diverse microbiome is key to a healthy gut and strong immune system. Each Taymount donor provides, on average, over 1000 different types of microbial cell.

Our 10 day FMT Programme uses implants from 10 different donors to maximise the diversity of gut flora a client receives.

We store safety aliquots for a minimum of two years

We take an aliquot (safety sample) from every FMT implant we create and store it at -80°c for a minimum of two years, to allow for any subsequent audit testing

We track FMT implants worldwide

Every single one of our implants (used in the UK or anywhere in the world), can be traced to its donor source. Our international tracking system provides peace of mind for us, and for clients.

We ultra deep freeze to be safe, responsive and accessible

Evidence shows frozen FMT implants are just as effective as fresh material (C. difficile studies 2014, 2016, 2017).

Freezing our FMT implants at -80°c allows us to be:

  • Safe – Freezing allows us to enforce our quarantine period. We only release FMT implants when donor screening proves the quarantine has been successfully cleared.
  • Responsive – Banking frozen implants allows us to respond quickly to meet patient need. For example, past clients can request top-up implants from any Taymount Clinic.
  • Accessible – We supply frozen implants worldwide in cryo-protective packaging to Taymount Partner Clinics to improve access to safe, high-quality gut flora.
We protect quality at every stage

Delivering safe, high-quality gut flora shapes each stage of our process.

  • We select – We only select donors with a healthy microbiome and coach them on dietary and lifestyle choices to optimise their gut health. Monthly stool testing for donors ensures ongoing microbial quality.
  • We extract – We extract only the gut flora (the microbiome) from the rest of the stool. We believe this offers a safer, higher quality solution.
  • We protect – Obligate anaerobes (microbial cells that cannot survive oxygen exposure) make up to 95% of the microbiome. We protect these microbial cells from oxygen at each stage, from donation to processing, storage and delivery to retain the entire microbiome for transplantation.
We consider you, the whole person

Our clients benefit from holistic advice, designed to help them gain long-term control of their digestive health.

Our team of clinicians includes FMT Practitioners, Nutritional Therapists and Naturopaths, who provide guidance on nutrition, lifestyle choices, stress relief and life-coaching as an integral part of our approach to Gut Flora Transplantation – FMT.

We also involve Holistic Dentists, who bring expertise in the connection between dental health and gut flora, which is key to helping us to work towards optimum outcomes.
