Raising the standards for microbiome research

Optimize your research with the right controls

The complexities involved in 16S rRNA community profiling and shotgun metagenomics methods pose significant challenges for microbiome research. Significant biases can be introduced at each stage of the microbiome workflow, affecting data interpretation and reproducibility.

NGS Standards provide a solution to this problem. From sample collection to data analysis, NGS Standards enable you to optimize your diverse research applications with confidence and improve the consistency and reproducibility of your data, run after run.

The robust applicability of these controls, combined with the ATCC commitment to authentication and characterization, make NGS Standards ideal tools for standardizing data from a wide range of sources and generating consensus among microbiome applications and analyses.
