The DNA Genotek OMNIgene•GUT collection system is compatible with the Shoreline Complete microbiome sample preparation kit allowing for convenient stabilization of fecal microbial samples followed by high-throughput lysis and amplification for microbiome NGS profiling. Read more.
Shoreline Biome’s proprietary technology combines a series of innovations; lysis, DNA prep, and PCR to significantly reduce hands-on time and time to result while improving coverage and representation of bacteria in microbiome samples.
This Tech Note describes how we use the StrainID kit to compare representation of different microbial strains between Shoreline Biome rapid lysis and commercially available DNA preparation methods.
As the understanding of the impact of an individual’s microbiome on their overall health, disease severity, and / or response to medications grows, the importance of high quality and standardized collection and processing techniques becomes ever more important.
