Easy, sequence-based organism identification using SeqStudio and SmartGene Bacteria

Sequencing of bacterial genes such as 16S rRNA is the ideal, complementary approach to identify and further characterize isolates which are not adequately discriminated by phenotypic tests and MALDI-TOF. Sequencing is the reference method of choice for bacterial identification and provides useful results even for rare or newly described species.

Laboratories looking to integrate these capabilities into their operations need IT solutions to facilitate the analysis and management of sequences and the generation of reports. SmartGene Bacteria is a suite of integrated tools, including constantly-updated reference sequence databases, designed to make the analysis and reporting of bacterial sequences easy and reliable and thus, compatible with the needs of a routine microbiology laboratory. SmartGene Bacteria is an ideal way to expand your laboratory's expertise in bacterial sequencing and to keep up with emerging pathogens, advances in bacteriology, and changes in nomenclature and taxonomy.

The SmartGene Bacteria module which is provided for use with Thermo Fisher's SeqStudio™ Genetic Analyzer and consumables are for Research Use Only and Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
