Low cost, rapid whole genome sequencing

High-throughput next generation sequencing (NGS) services for early surveillance of mutations and circulating viruses

Epidemiological Research

PRL performs whole genome sequencing for epidemiological research, which can be used to detect and track population-level genetic variants in viruses from positive clinical samples.

Private & Public Health Data

PRL’s rapid sequencing workflow has had a profound impact on epidemiologic surveillance capabilities to inform both public and private health responses. As of August 2022, we have uploaded more than 100,000 sequences to GISAID, the global access genomic data database.

Wastewater Surveillance

PRL's wastewater surveillance sequencing service can capture the presence of certain viruses in people with or without symptoms and regardless of whether they have access to testing. Wastewater surveillance can help predict changes in pathogen prevalence at scale and warn communities when a virus is spreading.

QC & Custom Projects

PRL's services also include the ability to sequence laboratory quality controls for manufacturers. Contact us to discuss your custom sequencing project.

Why utilize our sequencing service?

Fast and affordable variant identification through viral genome sequencing

Mitigate the Spread

Our advanced sequencing workflow can identify circulating variants at a surveillance-level, providing critical public health information in shaping mitigation and response.

Sequencing Capacity

Our public health scale sequencing capacity has a profound impact in epidemiologic surveillance capabilities. Our highly optimized workflow can process 15,000 viral sequencing samples per week.

Affordable & Fast TAT

Our advanced technology in whole genome sequencing allows us to provide sequencing services at a fraction of the cost compared to other market leaders. On average, sequencing results are delivered within 3-10 days.

Proven Credibility

We were the first to identify the Beta and Omicron variants in New York State in 2021.¹⁻² Our expertise can serve public health, CROs, educational facilities, biopharma and private employers looking for sequencing solutions.
