Sequence-based Ultra-Rapid Pathogen Identification (SURPI)

An ultra-rapid bioinformatics pipeline that uses state-of-the-art computational algorithms to analyze real-time next-generation sequencing (NGS) data for infectious pathogen detection and discovery.


  • Web-based interface and clients being charged to use the pipeline
  • Integration into existing bioinformatics suites
  • Coupling of SURPI analysis with the development of NGS-based clinical assay kits or platforms
  • Integration into existing Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)
  • Support for genomics research in a variety of different fields, including clinical diagnostics, blood bank screening, purity and safety
