How Varsmetagen works

1.Routine configuration

By knowing the platform where the sample file was generated, the library preparation technique, and the type of analysis to be performed, you can configure and use a custom pipeline.

2.File upload

In the upload step, upload the NGS sequencing raw files of the clinical samples. Varmetagen accepts the main formats (FASTQ and FASTQ.GZ)

3.Data processing

It is possible to relate each sample (input files) to information such as collection date, sample type, unique ID, previously registered patient. Then, just start the processing and track its progress.

4. Analysis and results

After the processing is done, it’s possible to evaluate quality metrics and the diversity of microorganisms present in each sample individually. Thus, ensuring more security and practicality in the analysis.

Advantages of using Varsmetagen®

Optimized analysis time

Optimize processing time, microorganism identification, and report generation from NGS human genetic samples.

Automated processing

A bioinformatics pipeline is responsible for performing quality analysis, taxonomic identification of organisms, specific mappings, and pre-classifications following rules created to facilitate the analysis and identification of pathogens.

Clinical interpretation support

Information from public databases such as ViralZone and NCBI, as well as additional results to support and validate findings

Artificial Intelligence

The analysis of many clinical samples allows for the training of artificial intelligence-based models to generate an anomaly score and organism frequency metrics to assist the user in the analysis process.

Sucess Case

The SarsOmics project, funded by CNPq, emerged at the beginning of the pandemic and performs the sequencing of the COVID-19 virus, SARS-CoV-2, in addition to studying co-infections with other viruses, bacteria and fungi in the respiratory tract of patients with COVID-19.

A huge amount of NGS data has been generated by the project, and the practicality and scalability of Varsmetagen has helped in the process of analysis and interpretation of these results.

Sucess Case

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Varsomics, in partnership with Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital, developed the world’s first test for the diagnosis of the new coronavirus based on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). The test, which was known as VarsVid, identifies the presence of the virus, functioning as a diagnostic tool to be used from the first day of infection, in the same way as RT-PCR, which makes it an alternative for adopting a diagnostic test. Processing takes up to 72 hours, and has 95% sensitivity and 99% specificity, or positive, there are no cases of false.
