Virus detection

The current virus outbreak has placed virus detection at a critical level. Whether it is for research or epidemiological surveillance, the detection of virus and especially SARS-CoV-2, has been exploited exponentially.

To tackle this challenge and keep up with growing demand for analyses, Life & Soft adapted itself and developed a bioinformatic analysis pipeline integrated within an easy-to-use application for batch processing virus variant detection.

If you need a quick, accessible and scalable solution to detect virus variant:

Nanoware is here to help.

Hightlights of Nanoware : Integrated and scalable

Quick results

The bioinformatic pipeline takes an hour on average from input files to the results: all variant mutations and quality data in a glimpse for all samples.

Real Time Web Interface

Follow the progess of the analysis and use highly interactive reports with rich user experience to sort, filter and visualise the tabular data.

Automatic Cloud execution

Starting from the input of the data, the analysis pipeline is automatic and operated on the Cloud for better efficiency, scalability and security.

High availability

Nanoware has already been used for over a thousand analyses per day by different medical laboratories. Its scalability bears substantial workload.

What we offer

According to your need and demand, Life & Soft will adapt its service:

Our sequencing platform is qualified for a complete packaged analysis going from your biological sample handling to the final results.

Nanoware may also be used independently and supports fastq files from already executed sequencing. Exploit the software as a service at your own pace and will.

Configure and run virus detection analysis with Illumina or Nanopore sequencing data.
The web application allows an easy access and management of all your runs as well as the exploration of your results for sample comparison.

SARS-CoV-2 Focus

The current running application is configured for SARS-CoV2 virus variant detection.
We use the Artic protocol for sequencing and the bioinformatic pipeline was developed for this specific protocol.

Nanoware uses latest updates of Nextstrain and Pangolin to assign epidemiological lineages for SARS-CoV-2-positive samples.

With the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic, the Emergen project was initiated for SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance. Nanoware follows its specifications and results may be exported according to the Emergen report format
The SARS-CoV-2 phylogeny tree may be displayed and adjusted with different parameters.


Broaden your virus target

The analysis pipeline as well as the web application are flexible and support different RNA or DNA virus detection.
Ebola, Zika, influenza or other viruses may be implemented according to your needs. The adjustment will be made quickly and efficiently by our team of expert.

Workflows adapted to Nanopore and Illumina technologies were developed for the following protocols:

  •   •ARTIC (Artic network)
  •   •COVIDSeq (Illumina)
  •   •EasySeq (Nimagen)
  •   •Respiratory Panel (Twist)
  •   •NEXTFlex (Perkin)
  •   •Sequence-independent, Single-Primer Amplification (SISPA)
