A comprehensive microbiome analysis to fit your unique research needs
The microbiota is becoming increasingly important to researchers and can be a significant variable that affects research findings. Because the microbiota can be impacted by experimental treatments that affect the physiology of the research animal, the microbiome of research animals must be easily identified and investigated.
By combining next-generation sequencing technology with metagenomics and bioinformatics tools, IDEXX BioAnalytic’s Microbiome Analysis provides a convenient, cost-effective, and most importantly, comprehensive picture of the animal’s microbiome.
All-inclusive testing with unparalleled customer-centric support
Our bioinformatics produces a timely, comparative analysis of known bacteria sequences for the best data comparison and analysis on the market.
