$13

Sample Analyzation

Each fecal sample costs $13 to test in a liquid chromatography machine. With $13, we can test a donated fecal sample. All donors to this project will be included in the acknowledgments of the academic article published using the data we obtain from this project.

$26

Bacterial Growth Medium

Both the bacterial and human cells in our gut need nutrients to grow and reproduce. The growth medium that provides these nutrients for growth on our gut chip is called DMEM. 500 milliliters of DMEM costs $26. All donors to this project will be included in the acknowledgments of the academic article published using the data we obtain from this project.

$50

Daily Wage

Our undergraduate research assistants will be making $10/hr as they conduct this experiment. $50 would provide about half a week's worth of pay for one researcher. All donors to this project will be included in the acknowledgments of the academic article published using the data we obtain from this project.

$100

Weekly Wage

Our undergraduate research assistants will be making $10/hr as they conduct this experiment. $100 would provide about a week's worth of pay for one researcher. All donors to this project will be included in the acknowledgments of the academic article published using the data we obtain from this project.

$206

Prebiotics

The prebiotic that we will be using in this experiment to nourish the human gut cells is called Inulin. 25 grams of this prebiotic costs $206. All donors to this project will be included in the acknowledgments of the academic article published using the data we obtain from this project.

$400

Monthly Wage

Our undergraduate research assistants will be making $10/hr as they conduct this experiment. $400 would provide about a month's worth of pay for one researcher. All donors to this project will be included in the acknowledgments of the academic article published using the data we obtain from this project.

$1,200

Liquid Chromatography

Liquid chromatography (LC) is an analytical chemistry technique used to separate solutions that we use to evaluate fecal samples. This technique, though effective, is expensive. $1200 would fund the LC analysis for all of the fecal samples. All donors to this project will be included in the acknowledgments of the academic article published using the data we obtain from this project.
