Microbiome Kits

Loop Genomics has expanded its kit and services capabilities to provide researchers with ultrahigh-resolution microbiome sequencing solutions using long-reads on Illumina sequencers. The four kits are a low biomass (e.g., human skin) phased V1-V9 full-length 16S kit with picogram input amounts and zero human DNA background, a phased 18S-ITS1-ITS2 long-read solution for ultrahigh-resolution fungal mycobiome profiling that interrogates a ~2.5 KB contiguous region of the genome (this kit also has a low biomass version), and a 16S read-cloud kit that offers a lower-cost solution for labs seeking UMI-based microbiome quantification with V1-V9 coverage, but without V1-V9 phasing.
