Next Generation Sequencing
Want to know what is in your food? Next generation sequencing (NGS) may be right for you. Rather than a targeted approach seen with qPCR testing, NGS is untargeted; if the sequence can be found in the database we can identify it. We offer NGS for animal, fish, produce (plant), fungal and bacterial speciation; that’s >25,000 species!
NGS is useful for;
A cost effective analytical tool, more versatile than “7 species screens” providing the ability to test for multiple areas simultaneously.
NGS is not useful for;
As with qPCR, NGS can only ever be semi-quantitative.
