Explify democratizes the power of Precision Metagenomics by providing labs with all the tools they need to detect thousands of known pathogens and discover emerging pathogens in a streamlined and unified workflow.

Metagenomics provides a complete picture of tens of thousands of microorganisms – pathogenic and non-threatening – present in and on the human body, which can be leveraged for unbiased pathogen detection. But accurate characterization of thousands of human pathogens identified by metagenomics poses tremendous challenges for laboratories; requiring expertise and hours of evaluation per sample.

The Explify® software platform* integrates artificial intelligence, knowhow from leading global experts, and proprietary reagents to empower laboratory professionals to gain rapid actionable infectious disease insights. The Explify software platform leverages ultra-rapid DNA search technology, AI-powered data interpretation, curated collections of millions of DNA sequences, comprehensive genotype-phenotype databases for AMR prediction, and user-friendly software interfaces to put Precision Metagenomics at the fingertips of laboratory personnel.

Based on the Explify software platform, IDbyDNA develops unmatched, syndromic Precision Metagenomics testing applications that provide customers with a unique combination of PCR-like sensitivity, genomics-level accuracy, and true insight.
