WGS is the gold standard for determining genetic relatedness. Together with the discriminatory power of WGS and the context from metadata, the 1928 platform adds an increased resolution and understanding of the transmission pathways in the hospital.
The 1928 platform uses core genome multilocus sequence typing (cgMLST) for outbreak tracing. This method is robust and enables strong comparability between sample sets. We generate our own cgMLST schemes which consists of conserved genes that can be used to generate a “pathogen fingerprint”. By visualising the number of identical genes found in phylogenetic trees, large sample sets can be compared and groups of closely related samples can be identified as outbreaks. The method also allows for new samples to be compared to historical data previously uploaded.
Service in the cloud for bacterial and fungal DNA sequences.
We have a skilled team ready to give you all the support you need to be confident in communicating your findings. Bioinformatics and technical support include:
All analysis pipelines are validated and benchmarked against public reference databases and in cooperation with regional and international collaborators.
ISO 27001 certification and compliance with GDPR and HIPAA ensure data and information security.
1928’s analysis of WGS provides the highest discriminatory power for typing of pathogens.
Downstream analysis cost is fixed and easily predicted = improved control of cost of operations.
Cloud service platform for microbial analysis
1928 is a cloud-based service that analyzes resistance markers from whole-genome sequences (WGS). Our technology searches for resistance markers and performs relational analysis between samples.
From raw reads to result in minutes
You start by uploading the sample to our cloud-based platform and the analysis starts automatically. Your NGS raw data is transcribed to results, providing an understanding of both what is unique in the sample and the overall picture in between samples.
Several hospitals in Europe and the USA are already now getting value out of the 1928 service. So, if you are starting to do WGS, we will be happy to provide the analysis for you.
Getting started with the 1928 Platform is easy. Our Team helps you from demo to implementation.
