Microbial genomics software for any bacteria, any research topic, 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 SeqSphere+ data analysis, microbiologists can use genome-wide hundreds/thousands of genes (cgMLST) for typing, resulting in higher discrimination and more accurate strain typing. Furthermore, SeqSphere+ supports resistome-, virulome-investigation, and real-time surveillance.

Real time genome sequencing with SeqSphere+ of resistant bacteria provides precision infection control in an institutional setting
The increasing prevalence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria is a serious global challenge. In a just published study (J. Clin. Microbiol. 54: 2874, 2016) it was prospectively analyzed whether bacterial whole-genome sequencing (WGS) for real-time MDR surveillance is technical feasible, returns actionable results, and is cost-beneficial.
