Axiom™ MiDAS is an analysis package for automated high-resolution genomic detection of microbial samples, designed for use with data generated from Axiom Microbiome Arrays.
High-resolution genomic identification of archaea, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses in complex microbial samples
Axiom MiDAS performs single-sample analysis of CEL files from Axiom Microbiome Arrays and automatically generates a comprehensive analysis summary in a simple-to-use software package.
Complete Axiom MiDAS workflow
Axiom MiDAS—simple, easy, integrated
Simplified workflow for complete analysis
Complete the microbial detection analysis workflow in a single package: perform plate QC and automatically generate a list of microbial targets present in every sample.
Use default tables and plots to visualize results, including plate QC results; sample, target, and probe summary tables; plots of target and probe characteristics; and target frequency histogram.
Directly access external National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) databases for expanded details on identified target.
Export results in multiple file formats.
Family and condensed family views
Visualize results in Axiom MiDAS Viewer
View summarized microbial content results that allow intuitive visual comparison of similarities and differences between samples.
Generate a summary table that provides a list of all samples with the number of targets detected in each sample. Summarized block Family and Condensed Family views detail sample granularity in the Family View.
Filter the Family tile view with the Condensed Family view to show only families detected in at least one sample and provide a cross-sample view of targets present.
Targets and microbe frequencies
Quickly search for a target of interest
View Targets window for table formatted results of all targets detected by Axiom MiDAS in each sample.
Visualize microbe frequency with a histogram of detected targets detailing the percent of samples where each target was identified and plotted at family or species level.
Export results in .PNG file formats (for plots) and .TXT (for tabular data).
