Introduction to Microbiome Analysis for Clinical Studies
The variety of sequencing methodologies, diversity of experimental conditions and computationally intensive bioinformatics pipelines all pose significant challenges for effective analysis of the microbiome in clinical studies.
At Clinical Microbiomics our in-house team of highly experienced scientists and bioinformaticians is crucial in helping resolve these difficulties in order to offer quality microbiome analysis services across a broad range of clinical study areas.
Clinical Studies Microbiome Analysis Applications
- Food, nutrition and probiotic research
- Drug discovery and development
- Skin care and cosmetics research and development
- Academic research
We have extensive experience helping clients and partners from a wide variety of different microbiome research areas, including academic institutions, global pharma, nutrition companies and biotech companies developing microbiome-targeted products.
Our microbiome analysis expertise allows us to accurately analyze how the microbiome varies between samples – from different treatment groups in clinical trials and intervention studies or to compare the microbiome in patients with disease to that of healthy subjects.
This proficiency combined with the support of our highly knowledgeable staff ensures confidence in reliable and reproducible microbiome data for all types of clinical study.
Clinical Studies Microbiome Analysis Solutions and Services
We offer comprehensive microbiome analysis and microbiome bioinformatics solutions that allow us to link microbiome data to clinical outcomes. Our analysis and data solutions include:
- Taxonomic and functional microbiome profiling
- Annotation and visualization
- Advanced statistical modelling
- Antibiotic resistance detection
- SNV-based strain tracking
- Responder/non-responder models
- FMT/probiotic persistence probability
- Phage discovery, and much more
In addition, we offer full service solutions for customers who also require support in extracting DNA and sequencing:
Sample Preparation - We offer DNA extraction performed under highly controlled and traceable conditions in our advanced, Copenhagen-based, ISO17025 certified laboratory.
Sequencing - DNA sequencing is performed using Illumina-based 16S sequencing or shotgun metagenomics sequencing at highly competitive prices, even for deep sequenced samples.
