Easy, streamlined solution for microbial profiling Axiom Microbiome Array enables the detection of all known microorganisms in a sample with species- and strain-level identification in a single, scalable assay. Utilizing the robust biochemistry of Axiom 2.0 Assay coupled with manual and automated target preparation methods, this streamlined protocol provides consistent and high-quality results. A simplified, upstream reverse transcriptase reaction enables the detection of RNA virus genomes. Hands-free array processing is performed on GeneTitan Multi-Channel Instrument. The complete solution includes arrays, reagent kits, and free, easy-to-use microbiome analysis software (see Figures 1 and 2).
Highlights: • Expert design for profiling human and animal microbiomes with a single assay •Detects greater diversity and higher resolution than 16s rRNA gene sequencing •Allows genetic profiling of all organisms present in a sample •Comprehensive coverage of over 11,000 organisms and five microbial domains: archaea, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses • Allows identification to the species, strain and sequence level. •Flexible 24- and 96-array plate formats •Sample type agnostic: applications in nutrigenomics, agrigenomics, and animal research •Simplified microbial detection analysis
