16S & 16S/18S Low Biomass
What will you discover when you get accurate, long-read sequencing from only picograms of input DNA?
Loop Genomics is proud to be the first company to bring you low biomass 16S and 16S/18S microbial metagenomics kits. Specifically designed for studying microbial communities where populations are low, such as in samples obtained from skin, water, air, and hard surfaces, these kits provide all the benefits of LoopSeq technology from only 2-200 picograms of starting DNA.
Through long-reads, de novo molecule assembly, and consensus error correction, we've seen these kits deliver species level results from the hundreds of low biomass samples we've already processed in our service lab.
Find out what microbes are present in healthy skin and see how they're perturbed in disease states with kits designed to maximize microbial DNA while avoiding human DNA.
Survey hard surfaces
Assesses and monitor pathogens that are living on hard surfaces in areas of concern such as hospitals, food preparation surfaces, and more. Our low biomass technology is already being used to study microbial communities on hospital surfaces in an effort from the Arkansas Children's Hospital Research Institute.
Airborne microbes are another cause for concern, but their low density can make metagenomics studies challenging. Both 16S and 16S/18S Low Biomass Kits are up for the task and are already in use in preliminary studies.
Whether you're monitoring water quality, looking at the environmental effects of runoff on marine life, or more, microbial communities can provide much-need data for scientific discovery and critical decision-making.
