Supporting Symbiosis Through Metagenomic Innovations

Increasing Challenges in Infectious Disease Diagnosis

Even today, with a multitude of tests and technologies, the exact cause of infectious diseases can go undiagnosed. Understanding bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites depends on comprehensive genomic information, which is why we believe metagenomic Next-Generation Sequencing (mNGS) is the key to discovering how microorganisms influence our health and ensure sustainability.

Realizing the Promise of Metagenomic Next-Generation Sequencing (mNGS)

With mNGS, accurate diagnosis can be made, plus rare, novel or unexpected pathogens can be identified. Yet, mNGS is not yet widely used in research or clinical settings for a number of technical and cost issues. At Micronbrane Medical, we take a systematic approach to removing any barriers to ubiquitous use of mNGS, from collection to action, to revolutionize the study, diagnosis, tracking and treatment of infectious diseases.
