How do you administer the implant?

Some FMT researchers use a ‘top-down” process where a nasogastric tube is inserted and tracked down through the esophagus and stomach, sometimes into the duodenum.

For a number of reasons (which include client comfort) we prefer to use a rectal catheter infusion of the implant that delivers the transplanted gut flora directly to the large bowel (colon).
