Your all-in-one genomics platform to uncover the microbial world

Fast and accurate identification and characterisation of microbes is vital to guide public health, food safety, and clinical research to prevent the spread of pathogenic microbes. Assembling complete microbial genomes is not only valuable for outbreak investigations and antimicrobial resistance surveillance, but also in microbial risk assessments, quality control monitoring, and novel food product development. Characterisation of microbial communities also provides invaluable insight for broad, real-time pathogen surveillance.

However, legacy sequencing technologies generate short reads that can miss critical genomic information, such as repetitive regions, limiting genome assemblies. Furthermore, legacy instruments are confined to centralised laboratories.

Nanopore sequencing overcomes these limitations to reveal rich microbial data with fast results.
