FARMINGTON, Conn.—Shoreline Biome, a microbiome research company based here that develops tools for characterizing microbiome populations down to the strain level, will unveil the first end-to-end sample prep kit on the market at the upcoming ASM Microbe 2019 event.

The American Society of Microbiology’s ASM Microbe 2019 is one of the leading microbiology conferences in the world. The five-day event will be held in San Francisco, Calif., June 20–24, 2019.

For the first time, Shoreline Biome will publicly showcase Shoreline Complete, an end-to-end product suite that provides a solution for lysis extraction and high-fidelity amplification. The suite is presented to users as product kits that are individually designed for PacBio and Illumina sequencers. Shoreline Biome has developed Shoreline Complete to be the fastest, easiest, and most complete sample prep kits on the market.

The kits will be available to purchase online and via purchase order.

At ASM Microbe 2019, Shoreline Biome, partners, and customer companies will present novel research that has taken advantage of Shoreline Complete kits capabilities.

“We’re very excited to participate in ASM Microbe 2019 and discuss our Shoreline Complete technology with potential partners and customers,” said Thomas Jarvie, Ph.D., a co-founder of Shoreline Biome. “We hope companies leverage our cutting-edge technology to help solve a variety of challenges across industries.”
