16S & 16S/18S Read Cloud
Looking to reduce sequencing costs while still leveraging the main benefits of Loop's technology?
Try our 16S LoopSeq Read Cloud or 16S/18S LoopSeq Read Cloud Kits and Services. These kits (and services) use the same, powerful single molecule counting technology that's in our standard 16S and 16S/18S LoopSeq Microbiome Kits but at a cost that's 100x lower because we sequence less.
You still get sequence from even low abundance molecules, a large reduction in false positive classifications, and eliminated PCR bias. All that changes is slightly less phasing information and consensus error correction.
How it works
We use the same technology for our 16S & 16S/18S Read Cloud Kits, we just sequence less, producing a less dense cloud of short reads. With the same number of barcodes as the standard kit, you'll still see even low-abundance molecules. However, with fewer reads/barcode, not every molecule has enough reads to make a full-length contig.
The Read Cloud Kit: the same number of barcodes with fewer reads per barcode.
Pool all samples into a single tube in the first step.
Higher resolution microbiome classification.
Barcode based quantification with no PCR bias.
