16S/ITS Microbiome Profiling Services

From challenging samples to insight with confidence

Microbiome research encompasses sample types as diverse as the human gut, Antarctic soil, ocean water and acidic hot-spring biofilms. These samples are challenging because they are difficult to lyse, as some microbes have tough extracellular matrices. Incomplete lysis of a microbial community results in an inaccurate representation of the microbial content of the sample. Additionally, PCR inhibitors present in these samples, especially humic acids, polysaccharides, polyphenolics, lipids and heavy metals, result in inaccurate quantification of nucleic acids and may inhibit downstream applications, such as qPCR and next-generation sequencing.

QIAGEN Genomic Services address these challenges with our industry-leading DNA isolation kits, which are based on optimized bead-beating and patented Inhibitor Removal Technology (IRT), and bioinformatics as well as industry-leading software intelligence for data analysis.
