The skin is the largest organ of the human body, which plays an irreplaceable barrier function to the external environment and resists the invasion of foreign substances. At the same time, the skin is also the place where the human body contacts with external environment, so human skin is home to millions of fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Different microorganisms grow in the specific parts of the skin and play a protective role. The skin microbiome is generally stable over time, unless the skin is exposed to a different external environment. The ecological imbalance of skin microorganisms can induce a variety of skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, etc. Therefore, understanding the characteristics of skin microflora is critical to exploring the evolution of host-microbe symbiosis, development of immune system, diagnosis of diseases, and the causes of diseases that may affect humans.Request a Quote
We have tested and analyzed various skin microbiome samples, and can help you uncover the diversity, abundance, evolutionary relationship of microbiome colonizing the skin surface by using next-generation sequencing (NGS), PacBio SMRT sequencing, and Nanopore sequencing platforms. In addition to this, we also utilize the real-time qPCR technology platform for the qualitative and quantitative study of skin microbiome.
Note: Our service is for research use only, and not for therapeutic or diagnostic use.
DNA samples of skin microbiome from humans and animals (such as sheep, mouse, rat, monkey, fish, horse, etc.) can be tested
Fungi, bacteria and viruses, etc.
We are equipped with Illumina HiSeq/MiSeq, Ion PGM, PacBio SMRT systems, Nanopore systems, PCR-DGGE (PCR-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis), real-time qPCR, clone library, and other detection platforms.
