As needed

Turnaround Time: 
2-4 weeks
Specimen Requirements: 

1) At least 400 uL (0.4 mL)  2) agar plate with fresh growth

Coolant: 
Dry-ice preferred, ice packs acceptable (thawed or mishandled samples will affect the quality of NGS results)
Comments: 

Note: A bacterial culture will be performed first and billed to the client for any external samples submitted for sequencing

Available for bacterial isolates only. We use Illumina technology and aim for 30-50x coverage depth of the bacterial genome. Analysis includes de novo assembly, multi-locus sequence typing (MLST), antibiotic resistance gene screening, virulence gene screening, pangenome comparison, SNPs and pangenome based dendrograms. Specific analysis such as serotyping can be performed based on needs.
