End-to-End Microbiome Platform


Simply send your biological specimens or DNA to CosmosID’s CLIA and GLP sequencing laboratory to generate microbiome and isolate data of the highest quality through optimized and standardized NGS workflows as well as access to a range of sequencing platforms such as Illumina and ThermoFisher.


Leverage the world’s most advanced microbiome analysis platform built on the largest database of microbial genomes and gene sequences as well as sophisticated algorithms for taxonomic identification and characterization. What’s more, leave PDF reports in the past with the CosmosID Cloud Application, giving you access to dynamic reports, charts and visuaiizations.



CosmosID’s biggest asset is its team. Whether it’s for study design consultation, functional analysis or executing custom bioinformatics projects, our interdisciplinary team of microbiologists, bioinformaticians, epidemiologists, statisticians and more, are on hand to help you gain actionable insight from your study.


Exceptional Performance

External bench-marking has been integral to the continuous improvement and development of both CosmosID’s laboratory and bioinformatics services . As a result, the platform has been assessed on numerous occasions through community challenges and committees and so we’re proud to have received various awards and accolades.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals’ Mosaic Strain Challenge

Focused on bench-marking and computational methods in microbiome characterization at the strain level, CosmosID was awarded first place for its capabilities in strain identification and characterization through shotgun metagenomics.

FDA award.png

PrecisionFDA - CFSAN Pathogen Detection Challenge

Focused on the positive and negative identification and characterization of Salmonella strains in 24 food safety samples using shotgun metagenomics, CosmosID scored highest in strain profiling along with the lowest false positive score of all entries.
