Fecal Microbiome Profiling Service

The intestinal mucosa is constantly influenced by the large numbers of coexisting microorganisms and their products. Immune responses arising from these interactions protect the host from both pathogenic and commensal microorganisms. Sudden changes in the homeostasis may influence disease susceptibility and progression in the intestine which could influence other parts of the organism. Therefore, comparison of microbiome and analysis potential influence of microorganisms based on fecal microbiome profiling could be fundamental to the development of diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

Metagenomic Fecal Microbiome Profiling

Metagenomic shotgun sequencing facilitates discoveries in the genetic and functional diversity of host-associated microbiomes, host-microbe interactions, gene prediction and annotation, and disease mechanisms. Through the shotgun metagenomic sequencing, genes of all microorganisms in a complex sample could be elucidated. As an NGS-based method, it can detect low abundance microbes in the fecal samples that are likely to be missed or too costly using other methods.

About Our Service

In Creative Proteomics, we provide both shotgun metagenomic sequencing services and 16S metagenomic sequencing for microbial profiling. Taxonomic assignment of microbial species in complex network analysis, microbial communities, evolutionary studies, and correlation analysis is made possible through NGS-based microbial identification either by single genetic targets or whole-genome strategies.

Our metagenomic sequencing platform utilizes cutting edge sequencing systems such as Illumina HiSeq 2500 and HiSeq 4000 (PE 150). They produce at least 5 Gb of raw data per sample with more than 80% of bases with a quality score of Q30. Our metagenomic shotgun sequencing tool is a powerful platform for obtaining relevant microbial genetic information in fecal samples. Moreover, we also provide Nanopore and PacBio based long-read metagenomics services. Our platform can cater to institutions focus on various fields.
