Introducing Microbiome Sequencing from One Codex

One Codex now offers sequencing! Over the years, we’ve heard the same struggles and frustrations from researchers about their microbiome workflow – slow turnaround times, unpredictable costs, high sample minimums, and data that isn’t as reproducible as it should be. We’re excited to share that we now offer shotgun sequencing, including DNA extraction, library prep, sequencing, and bioinformatics on the One Codex platform. For now, we are focused on stool samples, but stay tuned because there is more to come!

We’ve always been focused on providing data analysis that’s as accurate as it is easy to use. Now we’re bringing that same mindset to microbiome sequencing. From easy ordering, sample tracking, and fast turnaround time to our world-class microbial reference database, this service is intuitive and accurate – just like the data analysis we’ve provided for the last five years.

After sample accessioning, our highly automated lab ensures reproducibility and traceability for every specimen processed. We’ve carefully optimized the extraction and library prep steps to ensure consistent, accurate results. Shotgun sequencing enables taxonomic profiling of species and strains present in your samples, as well as functional prediction through analysis of gene content. Finally, raw data and analysis results are delivered via our easy-to-use platform for further exploration. And, we do all this in less than 4 weeks!

Now that we have built our own streamlined microbiome workflow, we want to share our insights with you! Over the next several months, we will publish a series of blog posts focused on wet lab and bioinformatics factors that impact your microbiome data. Subscribe to our blog from the chat widget to make sure you don’t miss any of these posts. In the meantime, you can learn more about our microbiome sequencing and analysis service.
