What are the differences between the EMMA test and traditional microbial culture?

The EMMA test is a next-generation sequencing approach to microbiome analysis. Unlike traditional microbial culture, which can only detect microorganisms that can be grown in a laboratory, metagenomics uses sequencing techniques to analyse all the DNA present in a sample, including bacteria, viruses and fungi. This allows for a more complete and accurate detection of the micro-organisms present in the sample.
