Microbial Identification and Microbiome Profiling
Directly in Native Patient or Environmental Samples
ARESid is a sequencing service for the accurate detection of pathogens, commensals or environmental microbes.
Native specimen or DNA
Data Analysis & Interpretation
Optimized for Pathogen ID and Microbiome Profiling
Detection of bacterial and fungal pathogens via amplicon sequencing can positively impact patient management, particularly for suspected infections with culture-negative samples.1
Amplicon sequencing also enables a cost-effective characterization of microbiome samples.
ARESid has been validated end-to-end to ensure high accuracy and reproducibility. Likewise, all Ares Genetics products and services have been validated end-to-end.
Actionable pathogen ID and microbiome profiling
Amplicon sequencing using short- or long-read technology
Accurate detection2 of bacteria and fungi via amplicon sequence variant (ASV) detection in the 16S ribosomal rRNA gene, or the eukaryotic ITS region
Reporting of detected microbes and their relative abundance via AREScloud and in standard bioinformatics file formats
