Anthelos has developed a novel molecular diagnostic product, the Microbiome genomic analysis kit (Cat. no. Ant-08) enabling semiquantitative detection of bacteria and fungi from diverse biological and environmental samples. The kit includes well designed primer sets that amplify 2 bacterial and 2 fungal genomic regions. The amplified products can be further analyzed by cloning, traditional and next generation sequencing methods. The kit has been tested with human samples to detect bacteria and fungi from pathogenic and healthy flora (skin, vaginal, fecal) as well as soil samples to determine environmental diversity.
At present the product can be used as Research Use only (RUO).
