Stay ahead of the game

Transform your research pipeline to run circles around the competition.

The kit

Each kit comes with all the reagents you need to get from extracted genomic DNA or RNA to a sequencing ready library.*

*Except magnetic purification beads (e.g., SPRI)

The service

Loop is also set up as a service lab. It’s as simple as sending your extracted DNA  or RNA samples to us and we’ll get the data and a full computational analysis back to you and your team. 

The cloud

Securely upload sequencing data for processing on Loop's cloud-based pipeline run on Microsoft’s Azure.

The data

Receive FASTQ long read files and CSV files with classification and abundance data. Learn more about how to use this in your pipeline.

Save time in the lab

Put down the pipette. With a simplified workflow, you can multiplex all your samples from a single tube, saving you hours in the lab.

The technology

The core of Loop's technology is the unique barcodes which attach to individual DNA molecules. Here’s how it works.


Every sample is exposed to millions of unique barcodes, but only one barcode attaches per strand of DNA at the 16S site.


Every molecule, along with its unique barcode, is amplified using PCR.


For each molecule copy, the barcode is randomly distributed within the molecule.


Sequence the segment next to each barcode.


Short reads that share the same barcode are combined algorithmically into a full-length molecule using linked-read de novo assembly.
