Microbial Profiling

 

16S Microbial Profiling

 

Whole Metagenome Shotgun Sequencing

Microbiome 2 Service page Microbiome

NGS has become a major tool for the profiling of microbial communities. Culturing can alter sample composition and even leave microorganisms undetected because of their failure to grow in the laboratory. Microbial Profiling quantifies all bacteria and archaea in your sample, helping you to understand their role in health and disease.

Microbiota composition affects human health

Gut, skin, and even environments that were believed to be sterile such as urine, contain microbes. These can be used to distinguish between humans, like a fingerprint. Our intimate relationship with microbiota can lead to a whole variety of diseases and conditions. From IBD, obesity, auto-immune-diseases, to even mental disorders such as anxiety or depression. Microbes even may confer susceptibility to cancers and can influence the response to therapeutics. Advancements in high-throughput NGS screening methods have fueled the research in this area.

16S Microbial Profiling

Get an analysis of the microbiome together with the host genome by the amplification of 16S ribosomal RNA gene, and without any loss of efficiency or sequencing depth.
