The MicroSEQ ID 16S rDNA 500 Supplemental Library v2022 is a stand-alone library that extends the size of the MicroSEQ ID 16S rDNA 500 Library to strengthen the identification process when using MicroSEQ ID Microbial Identification Software. The Supplemental Library contains 7,138 16S rDNA public sequences of type and non-type strains of bacterial species that underwent the same rigorous validation process as the sequences in the MicroSEQ ID 16S rDNA 500 Library. The Supplemental Library is used when the MicroSEQ ID 16S rDNA 500 Library results in a percent match lower than the species ID acceptance criteria.
Key features include:
• Quality controlled—an in-silico validated library with over 7,000 type and non-type strains quality-checked for sequence, taxonomy, nomenclature, and phylogeny
• Simplified—reliable entries from public resources converted into a simple format for routine validation of unique environmental isolates
• Consistent—the same acceptance criteria for analysis and the same reporting format in the software
• Maintained—regular updates for entries and information supported by experienced Thermo Fisher Scientific technical staff
