The Coprata experience is made possible with our patent-protected toilet technology, invented by a team of renowned experts in waste and wellness.

The best part: it feels & functions just like a normal toilet. You - and your house guests - won’t know it’s smart at all.

Elegant engineering separates solid waste (AKA #2) from liquid waste (AKA #1). Sensors discreetly capture data during this temporary isolation, so you won't even notice it happening. Then, just like a regular flush, everything is set back to normal.

Improved Therapeutic Management

Your provider can make improved decisions based on stool data that is timely and accurate

Hands-free Stool Sample Collection

Convenience & dignity with no manual stool sampling

Personalized Insights

Objective data on toileting habits inform behavioral nudges to reduce problematic behavior

What's up next?

More data about stool. Crohn's and Colitis. Microbiome. Colon Cancer.

Morphological stool data is the first step of Coprata’s advanced stool analysis. The development of automatic stool sampling for biochemical analysis is currently underway. The Coprata Smart Toilet will enable hands-free collection of stool specimen, facilitating the measurement of fecal biomarkers. These biomarkers include calprotectin, which predicts flare-ups of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as occult (hidden) blood detected by the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), a non-invasive screening for colon cancer. The stool specimen collected by Coprata’s Smart Toilet have been used for gut microbiome analysis. With convenient access to stool specimen provided by Coprata, we envision an increase in the number of fecal biomarkers used in health screening and disease management through clinical research.
