Microbial Identification

Microbial identity testing is a crucial step in ensuring the quality and safety of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and food products. Our testing laboratory offers a range of microbial identity testing services to help clients identify and quantify the microorganisms present in their products and manufacturing environments.

We offer both phenotypic and genotypic techniques for microbial identification. Our phenotypic approach involves using API strips, which are miniaturized biochemical testing systems that can rapidly identify a wide range of microorganisms based on their metabolic and enzymatic activities. This method is effective for identifying both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, as well as yeast and fungi.

Our genotypic approach utilizes DNA sequencing to accurately identify the microorganisms present in a sample. DNA sequencing is a highly accurate method for microbial identification, capable of identifying even minor differences between closely related microorganisms. This approach is especially useful in cases where the API strip method is not effective, such as for identifying new or uncultured microorganisms.

At our testing laboratory, we use a range of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to provide accurate and reliable microbial identity testing services. Our team of experienced scientists and technicians work closely with clients to understand their specific needs and provide customized testing solutions to meet their requirements. We also adhere to strict quality control procedures to ensure that our results are accurate and reliable.
