Why NGS with omiics

NGS comprises various sequencing technologies and applications.

We offer personally tailored strategies for your projects

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

is a marked improvement over previous genetic technologies, e.g. Sanger sequencing, microarray and qPCR. These older approaches, while useful, require that you already know what you are looking for and only provide information about that target. 


NGS versus other methods:

The high dynamic range in NGS allows the detection very small differences in expression patterns between samples. This also allows for sequencing of low-input samples.


Treatment

Control

Sequence RNAs

TYPES OF SAMPLES:


Tissues, cells, powders, biofluids (CSF, bile, saliva, exosomes, IVF media), and others.

Map all differences

(e.g. effect of treatment/mutation)

Spot the trend

(e.g. identify biomarkers)


NGS gives you every nucleotide sequence in your sample. Hence you get a complete, unbiased overview of every genetic difference between your samples. What you did not know to look for, often makes the most significant finding (one of our case studies is a great example of this).  

NGS is a powerful tool.

It generates a wealth of data that needs to be analyzed and interpreted.


While one huge advantage of NGS, not knowing what you are looking for can also be problematic. Negative or inconclusive results can be caused by an error at any stage along the way.



At omiics, you will have expert sample sample preparation, sequencing, data processing, coding, and interpretation of the results. Having NGS experts by your side through the whole process ensures you can trust your results and focus on the science.

RESULTS OF NGS

 

The result of NGS are patterns of RNA expression. By quantifying changes in RNA levels, we can pin-point the expression of every gene that is being turned up or down. Through advanced bioinformatics this enables mapping of cellular pathways likely affected.

omiics is so much more than sample processing - we deliver the highest quality at every step - from meticulous sample preparation to expert bioinformatics


With our new data exploration tool, we have made bioinformatic data accessible to EVERYONE. As a researcher, you can explore your own data and discuss the findings with our experts.
