Time and Motion Study of a Fully Automated Isolate Whole Genome Sequencing (iWGS) Platform for Surveillance of Foodborne Pathogens

May 22, 2023

In collaboration with Nebraska Public Health Laboratory (NPHL) at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), a time and motion study was performed. We found that the fully automated Clear Dx™ Microbial Surveillance WGS platform improved laboratory efficiency and provided results faster than manual next generation sequencing workflow, thereby enabling optimized epidemiological investigation.
