Pathogens don’t respect geographic borders.

The global health community needs the ability to share information and quickly track outbreaks.

IDseq takes in molecular data from labs and clinics and quickly processes the results to provide actionable information on the state of pathogens in the given set of samples. This allows scientists to make data-driven decisions about everything from when to deploy antibiotics, where to prioritize immunization campaigns, and how to shape mosquito and other disease surveillance and control efforts.

IDseq empowers labs around the globe by supplying compact sequencing hardware coupled with powerful cloud based software that can compare against enormous datasets.

hear what scientists have to say about idseq

“User friendly compared to existing tools - Anyone can do this without any bioinformatics knowledge!"

“Love the graphical display and easy steps to follow.”

"I find the speed of the pipeline to run a sample to be very impressive, and the fact that this can be parallelized makes IDSeq great for analyzing large datasets in a reasonable amount of time."

"Coolest thing is we can go deep down to individual alignment, download fasta sequence, do phylogenetic analysis etc.”
