A SCREENING AND DIAGNOSTIC TOOL
The array contains probe sequences designed to detect a wide range of organisms known to be environmental contaminants or pathogens. The exclusion of a sample enrichment requirement ensures an accurate representation of the tested microbial population by avoiding sample enrichment bias. This assay is best applied as a monitoring, research, or screening tool. Possible uses may include investigating sources of contamination, testing the effectiveness of remediation methods, or screening potential facilities for pre-existing contamination.
