Helios Genomics

Our services utilize the latest next-generation sequencing technologies that provide incredible depth and long accurate sequences. This means that the entire microbial community and microbial processes in your sample will be accurately and rapidly identified. Our expert petroleum and industrial environmental microbiologists interpret the sequence data to provide you with actionable information that you can use to improve production, reduce your environmental footprint, and mitigate risks.

Our services include: 16S tag sequencing, total DNA sequencing, and quantitative PRC panels.

We have developed expertise extracting DNA from difficult samples with low biomass, inhibitors, and clays. Our sample extraction expertise includes, but is not limited to: production and injection water, pipeline fluids and solids, biofilms, soil, water, and other fluids.Using the latest DNA sequencing platforms we either sequence the16S rRNA gene, other specific genes, or all of the genes in a sample. This allows for rapid and accurate identification of all the microorganisms or functional genes in the sample. Our petroleum and environmental microbiologists analyze the sequence data and create customized microbial sample assessments. The report includes the identification of the microbes or genes, an assessment of the function of the microbes or genes, and an analyses of the diversity in your sample. Finally, in consultation with the client, our scientists help the client understand how the microbial community is impacting their operations and assist in the development of mitigation and monitoring strategies.
