microbiome analysis laboratory
Microbiome expertise, primer availability, multiplexing capabilities, streamlined library preparation.
Primers available to date:
RNA Sequencing (RNA-Seq) analysis will allow you to characterize all transcriptional activity or a select subset of RNA transcripts of your sample by using Illumina technology .
Terminal Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (TRFLP)
This fingerprinting methodology provides general profiles of complex microbial communities based on variation in the 16S rRNA gene. TRFLP does not provide specific identification.
Sample DNA extraction
We are equipped to process your sample from beginning to end and are able to provide DNA extraction services. However, depending on the sample type and origin, specific permits might be required for shipment and acceptance. If so, we will assist you with this.
Upon request we can also provide curated Bioinformatic analysis of your Microbiome project.
Quantitative PCR (qPCR)
We provide qPCR service for the quantification of specific genes of interest for your samples. Check the list of primers for qPCR currently available here.
