First Provider in Germany: CeGaT Offers Sequencing Services Based on PacBio's SMRT Technology
(PresseBox) CeGaT, a global provider of sequencing services for research, clinical trials, and human genetic diagnostics, is the first provider in Germany that has equipped its sequencing laboratory with the PacBio system. The Single Molecule Real-Time (SMRT) technology behind it allows the generation of HiFi reads with exceptional accuracy and length. Using this technology, CeGaT now offers full-length sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene, including all variable regions. Thus, microbial taxa can be determined accurately.
The Tübingen-based company makes state-of-the-art sequencing technologies available to all life scientists. With the implementation of Full-Length 16S Sequencing into its portfolio, CeGaT now offers sequencing of the entire 16S rRNA gene to determine taxonomic distribution in bacterial communities, such as the gut microbiome.
