Your Advantage

Rely on accurate and reproducible data thanks to validated analytics, as demonstrated in multiple clinical validation studies*:

1. Validation of Illumina isolate sequencing following CLIA guidelines.
2. Multicentre clinical validation of ONT isolate sequencing.
3. Multicentre clinical validation of antibiogram prediction from genome data.
