We are the sole provider of the award-winning PhyloChip™ assay developed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This technology capable of providing the most detailed measurements of microbial community dynamics in a high-throughput reproducible manner.
We provide a cost-effective, highly parallel sequencing assay for conducting 16S community analysis. This method allows classification of both known and unknown bacteria to conduct comparative analysis between the relative abundance of bacterial and archaeal species.
This service goes beyond 16S rRNA microbial abundance and diversity determination to provide valuable insight into the functional gene composition of the microbial community. This advanced investigation leverages specialized methods in both sequencing and bioinformatics to provide a window into the function and pathways encoded in the microbiome.
Characterizing both the pathways and specific functions expressed by the microbes in an environment, this research solution provides the most robust approach for exploring microbial function. This solution uncovers the functions required for a microbial community to survive, and when used in comparative analysis it can identify key functions and pathways that differentiate one community from another.
We offer DNA and RNA isolation in conjunction with our assay services. With the ability to isolate nucleic acid from more than 25 different sample types, including human and mouse fecal specimens, surface swabs, needle aspirates and lavage fluid, we are experts in obtaining high yield and integrity.
This offering leverages 16S community profiles to estimate the metagenomic function of a microbial community. In this computational approach to functional composition, 16S sequencing reads are mapped to known genome’s within a reference database.
For researchers who already have their laboratory data solution but need assistance in analyzing their microbiome data, our team provides custom informatics solutions for projects of all sizes.
We offer customized sample collection protocols and microbiome collection kits to ensure consistent and straightforward sample collection during clinical studies. We will work with your team to customize your kit to suit the collection needs of your study and participants.
