In today’s world, consumers want to know what they’re eating and where it came from. Modern global food chains present a world of possibilities and questions to answer. We’re here to help by delivering the most advanced pathogen screening and detection tests with the power of next-generation sequencing (NGS).
Bacteria continue to evolve, leaving traditional traceability and identification methods like housekeeping genes and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) unable to resolve more nuanced genetic differences between subtypes.
We found a better way: the Omnilocus sequence typing (OLST) system.
The OLST platform delivers industry-leading identification and characterization of pathogens like Campylobacter, using 26 validated loci to distinguish subtypes.
Species X was collected and analyzed against the MLST database which provided inconclusive results. Subsequent analysis through the OLST database provided greater specificity in matching the sample to the best subtype.
