Microbiota solution A / Microbiota solution B


Microbiota solution A / Microbiota solution B is an in vitro device based on the amplification of nucleic acids by PCR (“Polymerase Chain Reaction”) of the hypervariable regions of bacterial 16S rDNA gene, through the use of degenerated primers that allow the identification of most of the bacterial populations present in the microbiota.

The subsequent sequencing in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) allows the identification of the bacterial populations present.

Potentially it is possible to identify all the bacterial species present in the sample without the selective pressure of the bias introduced by the culture conditions in the laboratory.

After the sequencing in NGS, the samples are analyzed automatically using a dedicated software that can return a report with the results of the single sample, or a comparative report of the samples selected by the user.

The kit is intended for the qualitative evaluation of the human microbiota starting from bacterial genomic DNA samples.
