Gut Microbial Diversity Analysis Service


Gut Microbial Diversity Analysis Service

The totality of fungi, viruses, bacteria, and protozoa, and their entire genetic material contained in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) describes the gut microbiome of an organism. It is imperative to support studies defining microbial diversity in varying human populations. Results could help design future therapeutic methods for the restoration of the meta- Human organism wellness.

The gut microbial diversity analysis is usually anchored on the 16S/18S/ITS amplicon sequencing platform. It enables efficient characterization of microbial diversity by utilizing next-generation sequencing technology and other molecular techniques. Creative Proteomics experts utilize this platform to greatly assist our customers and meet regulatory requirements at the same time. Our team consists of around 70% of scientists with a Ph.D., and our advanced sequencing platforms such as our PacBio systems and Illumina PE250/300 are available to cater to varying sequencing requirements.

About Our Service

Our innovative microbial diversity detection platform produces an accurate and high-throughput analysis of the 16S/18S/ITS region via combined advanced sequencing technology and quantitative PCR (qPCR). Both short-read 16S/18S/ITS sequencing by next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology and full-length 16S/18S/ITS sequencing by PacBio SMRT sequencing and Nanopore sequencing can be delivered. Sanger sequencing or qPCR with genus- and species-specific primers are used for validating the results and to quantify microbial species. Prokaryotic diversity analysis and eukaryotic diversity analysis can be both conducted in our gut microbial diversity platform utilizing the role of 16S/18S/ITS as the molecular marker in prokaryotes and eukaryotes.

Our Advantages:

  • Detection of low abundance species of microbial communities
  • Years of commercial experience in life sciences
  • Quick and affordable services
  • Cutting-edge sequencing platforms featuring both next-generation and long-read sequencing platforms
  • Flexible sequencing strategies and data analysis.
