What is Next Generation Sequencing?

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a molecular based method that can sequence and detect the DNA of ALL microbes that live on your dog’s skin, without having to grow any of these organisms in a laboratory first. NGS is considered the gold standard for the detection and identification of microorganisms.

More information about NGS can be found on Illumina’s®  webpage >>
