Depending on your input source, we offer different kits and services.
When looking at the gut microbiome, the 16S Long Read kit or the 16S Read Cloud kit will be the most suited solution.
When working with environmental samples, such as soil or water, the 16S-18S kit will give the best results as this one has been optimized to work with low biomass samples.
Unlike other kits that mostly only target V3 and V4, the Loop Genomics technology enables targeting the entire 16S gene and therefore all 9 variable regions. This enables a far more accurate classification of species down to species level with great confidence.
