Beneficial Uses: Some Bacillus species have beneficial roles and are used in various industrial, agricultural, and medical applications. For example, Bacillus subtilis is a model organism for studying bacterial genetics, and it is used in the production of enzymes and other biotechnological processes. Bacillus thuringiensis is used as a natural insecticide in agriculture.
Probiotics: Certain Bacillus species are used as probiotics, which are live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer health benefits to the host. Bacillus coagulans and Bacillus clausii are examples of Bacillus species used in probiotic supplements to support digestive health.
Food Spoilage: Some Bacillus species can be involved in food spoilage. They may produce enzymes and metabolites that lead to the degradation of food, causing changes in texture, flavor, and odor.
Potential Pathogens: While many Bacillus species are harmless, a few can be opportunistic pathogens. For example, Bacillus cereus is associated with foodborne illnesses, causing symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting. In rare cases, it can lead to more severe infections.
Environmental Contamination: Bacillus species, including those forming spores, can be found in soil, dust, and water. In certain environments, exposure to Bacillus spores may be a concern for individuals with compromised immune systems.

Different labs use different software to read the sample. See this post for more details.
One lab may say you have none, another may say you have a lot! - This may be solely due to the software they are using to estimate.
We deem lab specific values using values from the KM method for each specific lab to be the most reliable.
Lab Low and High are calculated using the formula that most labs use: Mean - 2 Standard Deviation to Mean + 2 Standard Deviation
