Microbial Identification – Unique Service in the Market
Our unique identification laboratory has two 16 capillary Microseq™ genetic analyzers and a Vitek® MS (mass spectrometer) that allow for robust Microbial ID analyses and increased throughput. We are experts in both fungi and environmental contaminants. Genetic analysis of the ribosomal RNA and analysis of proteins through MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry are accurate and validated. Libraries are maintained and periodically updated by the manufacturers. Determining the correct genus and species is essential for developing a robust product and environmental surveillance program.
