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.
Novel core-genome MLST typing scheme for Legionella pneumophilia presents prospects for a standardized, portable and expandable typing method based on whole genome sequencing.
SeqSphere+ was used to establish and evaluate a cgMLST scheme for L. pneumophilia. (Eurosurveillance 20: 2015)
