LoopSeq long-read microbiome sequencing

LoopSeq™ microbiome library preparation kits from Loop Genomics enable synthetic long reads from Illumina® sequencers, allowing researchers to analyse the full V1-V9 variable regions of the 16s and 18s rRNA molecule with no requirement for additional hardware.

Combining single molecule counting, long reads and consensus error correction, LoopSeq offers the lowest possible false positive rate and the most accurate classification of any metagenomics kit on the market. 

Loop Genomics technology
Using a set of enzymes to propagate a barcode intra-molecularly through a sample, LoopSeq kits use a simple, single tube workflow. Molecules are labelled in the first step and only sequenced/reported once, thus removing PCR bias and allowing accurate quantitation. This allows molecules present in very low abundance to be reported, rather than getting lost in the noise introduced by PCR. Learn more about Loop Genomics technology.

Benefits of using the LoopSeq kit
• Full V1 – V9 region covered
• Single tube workflow after 20-minute labelling step
• 24 individual microbiome samples multiplexed in a single tube
• Avoids PCR & GC bias
• Consensus error correction lowers error rate
