The Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test allows the food industry to identify specific pathogen strains, monitor for pathogen-related problems in the food supply, and trace outbreaks. It pairs WGS technology with company’s proprietary analytics pipeline to enable retailers and manufacturers to understand how different pathogen and probiotic strains are related to one another, how they are connected evolutionarily, where they come from geographically, and with which food groups they are associated. The test is also capable of matching pathogen strains with ingredients, allowing customers to correlate the strain of bacteria with specific food ingredients and suppliers.
