Genome Sequence Scanning bacterial strain typing offers unmatched levels of speed and automation for food industry testing and public health outbreak investigations. GSS is an automated system that extracts and analyzes microbial DNA directly from complex samples to confirm and strain type foodborne pathogens. The strain information provided is comparable to pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), the current gold standard for pathogen typing in outbreak investigations. The automated platform and simplified protocol require minimal training and ensure consistent, accurate results across laboratories.
