Biosafety Level 1

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Comments ATCC® Microbiome Standards are mock microbial communities that mimic mixed metagenomic samples. The LGC Metagenomic Control Material for Pathogen Detection was developed in partnership with the LGC Group, an international leader in genomics, measurement standards, and reference materials, as an ATCC Microbiome Standard representing a mock microbial community of bacterial species commonly observed in clinical infections, including antimicrobial-resistant organisms. The product comprises genomic DNA prepared from fully sequenced, characterized, and authenticated ATCC Genuine Cultures®, and was quantitated using Droplet Digital™ PCR to improve precision in relative abundance among strains within the community (refer to the Certificate of Analysis for more information). Each order for this product is provided with access to run 20 analyses on One Codex, the leading bioinformatics platform for microbial genomics and metagenomics.

Specification Range: 0.80 ng/µL to 1.33 ng/µL*
