Assays

Our lab currently has numerous pathogen assays available. We offer 12 different panels with many more in development. We also have 8 antimicrobial resistance assays available as panel add-ons. Our assays are open source which means they should work on most open source PCR platforms. You can learn more about which panels we currently have available by clicking on the panel link at the bottom of the page.
