A MicroGenDX Partnership Program
Advanced Biodata Labs provides state-of-the-art diagnostic testing in the convenience of your lab through MicroGenDX. We offer the ONLY molecular testing solution that provides qPCR within 24hrs — with the option to be followed by next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) in as little as 3.5 days — to more accurately and comprehensively identify microbes within an infection.
qPCR + NGS: Why we give you both
qPCR is an excellent diagnostic tool for rapid & specific species detection. qPCR panels can detect between 8-35 species of microbes. Next-gen DNA sequencing (NGS) is the best option for bridging the gap between what rapid qPCR detects and identifying all the species present in an infection. MicroGenDX has identified over 10,700+ microbes in human samples through NGS, often identifying dominant microbial species missed by qPCR panels alone.
|PCR||Next-Gen DNA Sequencing|
|Rapid turnaround time (24-48 hours)||Average 3.5 day turnaround time|
|Panel detects 8-35 of the most common species of microbes||Detects all bacteria and fungus – including aerobes, anaerobes, and facultative anaerobes – to the species level. Can identify 50,000+microbes with 99.2% accuracy|
|May not detect species if it has mutated||Identifies all microbes present, regardless of mutation, by percentage of unique DNA found in the sample|
|Could miss dominant species within the infection||Identifies all bacteria and fungus in sample according to load, including dominant species. To date over 10,700 unique species in humans have been identified by MicroGenDX|
Our highly experienced team of professionals delivers an in-house solution to run qPCR samples in your own CAP and CLIA certified laboratory. Our implementation is in partnership with BlackHawk Genomics.

The end result is your lab providing a CAP and CLIA certified qPCR test, inclusive of antimicrobial resistance genes. You also have the option for MicroGenDX to provide next-gen DNA sequencing reports — the best diagnostic tool for microbial detection.
How soon can I get started?
On average, it takes our experienced team just eight weeks to complete installation and training for in-house testing. The time period allows for any necessary construction and equipment purchase. Once these tasks are completed, the on-site validation and training is conducted. This comprehensive approach includes meeting, in full, all CLIA/CAP regulations.
