Metagenomics provides a culture-free approach for generating complete microbiome profiles quickly and cost-effectively. Nonetheless, researchers face several challenges to integrate mNGS workflows for microbiome profiling and diagnostics research. To fully realize the potential of metagenomics, Micronbrane Medical developed a suite of tools that eliminate these drawbacks one by one.
The Devin Fractionation filter reduces the sequencing of host reads commonly found in bodily fluids.
The Unison Ultralow Library Kit streamlines library preparations for low-input DNA extracts while minimizing contamination.
Our highly-curated PaRTI-Cular bioinformatics software generates accurate microbiome profiles quickly, helping you produce results and publish robust research.
We believe a hypothesis-free, unbiased approach to pathogen identification would be a paradigm shift in clinical microbiology. While our products are currently for Research Use Only (RUO), in many countries, hospitals are validating the PaRTI-Seq assay for clinical implementation.
The PaRTI-Seq assay is especially ideal when culture takes too long or there is a high percent of negative cultures that impact patient recovery or extend hospital stays. Most importantly, medical practice needs a single test, like mNGS, that has the capacity to identify bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and other pathogens at the same time to facilitate diagnosis and to save overall healthcare costs.
