Nasal and oral swabs are an important part of the CHIME Study. With your help, we hope to use this information to study the bacteria, or “microbiome”, living in the nose, mouth and intestine of healthy children.
You will be provided with all of the information and materials needed to collect stool samples and nasal and oral swabs by the CHIME Study staff. For more information, please watch the instructional videos about collecting stool samples, as well as nasal and oral swabs from your child.
