CAGE Sequencing services


CAGE capabilities can be customized to meet the needs of food, pharmaceutical or probiotic industry (to name just a few) in discovery and assesment of microbial communities. Mapping microbial communities that exist in specific products, processes, or environments can provide the foundation for creating new risk assessment strategies; identifying benefitial or harmful microbial agents; discovering strains etc. Please contact us if you are interested in our applications -- we'll be happy to discuss your project or deliver a detailed presentation of our capabilities.
