With ORVIdecode Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) we map the biodiversity in a sample. This is done by reading (“sequencing”) the DNA or RNA from the sample. All known bacteria, archaea, yeasts, fungi, flora and fauna can be mapped. This offers unprecedented possibilities in the field of water treatment , soil remediation and biological cycles.
Examples of themes and projects in which we apply ORVIdecode NGS are, for example: Active Sludge Profiling (ASP) in WWTPs, measuring antibiotic resistance, demonstrating natural degradation of soil contaminants with Genetic Plume Profiling (GPP) and identifying contamination in industry. Contact us to discuss your specific use case.
With an ORVIdecode analysis, large amounts of data are released. We process the data in clear, interactive files that give you insight into the composition of biodiversity. To discover the key parameters (the most important micro-organisms for example), we use Bio-IT tools to compare data sets, perform correlation studies and understand the active processes. Once the key parameters have been identified, your process can be monitored and improved accordingly.
