Ridom SeqSphere+

NGS microbial typing solution for any bacteria, any study type, any lab.

Combining the best - Comparability of MLST and discriminatory power of PFGE.

Microbiologists everywhere can experience the genomic revolution that benchtop next generation sequencing (NGS; e.g., Illumina, Ion Torrent or Roche/454) provides. With fast and affordable microbial whole genome shotgun NGS and automatized software analysis, microbiologists can use genome-wide hundreds/thousands of genes (MLST+/cgMLST) for typing, resulting in higher discrimination and more accurate strain typing.
