Parents are donating dirty diapers to give babies a head start in life

Evolve BioSystems developed a diagnostic tool to determine if babies have healthy microbiomes. Many infants are born without enough bacteria in their guts which can lead to poor health outcomes. The test will determine of children need more bacteria through a stool sample. By boosting gut health in infants, the company estimates they can cut down on diaper use—healthy guts mean less stool.
