Short read sequencing (SRS)

Element's short read sequencing (SRS) enables the accurate sequencing of reads at high coverage depth. Our proprietary bioinformatics pipeline analyzes sequencing data in the form of fastq files, identifying resistance and virulence genes through de novo assembly of isolates. Additionally, our pipeline provides multiple typing analyses for epidemiology, including single nucleotide polymorphism identification. With our SRS service, you can trust you're receiving high-quality results and comprehensive analysis. 

Long read sequencing (LRS)

Achieve your goals faster and with greater precision than ever before with Element's LRS technology, providing unparalleled accuracy and efficiency for genome research. With exceptional read length and enhanced overlap, LRS allows for more complete and accurate information, making it the preferred approach for genome assembly and annotation, SNP identification, and plasmid mapping. 

The Element advantage

As a CLIA certified and a participant in external proficiency testing programs (CAP, QCMD) Element meets federal regulations for clinical diagnostic testing. This ensures the quality, competency, and safety in the laboratory. In summary, you can trust us to deliver the highest quality results and data. Plus, we can align study compliance to your specific GxP requirements - so, get in touch with us today to discuss your needs.
