One Codex is a data platform for applied microbial genomics, enabling new and valuable applications in clinical diagnostics, food safety, and biosecurity

Best-in-class metagenomics

One Codex helps applied microbiologists rapidly assess their samples, with a platform that is:

Fast – Process isolates or complex metagenomic samples in minutes, not days

Comprehensive – Search the world's largest index of bacterial, viral, and fungal genomes

Accurate – Best-in-class sensitivity and specificity

  Microbiome Standards powered by One Codex

The ATCC® Microbiome Standards powered by One Codex are a set of 6 gDNA and whole cell mixed community standards.

With analysis provided by One Codex, these controls enable researchers to measure and improve the accuracy and reliability of their microbiome sequencing, run after run.

Microbial genomics — in context

Rich sample management allows complex samples to be indexed, searched, and compared

Organize + query samples

Search for samples by name, metadata, MLST, tag, or the taxa present and concentration

Compare analyses

Simple, but powerful sample comparison, including exportable data, taxa filtering, and drilldown
