Microbial Analysis

We have developed techniques for analysis of the microbiome in the diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) using NGS  (figure here) and now offer analysis of the microbiome for other purposes.  This includes, for example, other types of ulcerating tissue.

These techniques give a large amount of information which at least for the DFU can seem impractical for current usage, especially as clinical decisions with regard to the presence of infection and subsequent use of broad spectrum antibiotics are made very quickly with confirmatory microbiology often following three days later.
