Microbial Identification

Microbiological Identification

Identification of unknown microorganisms by traditional methods can be time consuming and often lack sensitivity, particularly to differentiate the closely related organisms. The analyses of the highly conserved 16S ribosomal rRNA gene and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region have been internationally accepted for the rapid and precise identification of bacteria and fungi to the species level. A&L provides identification of unknown microorganisms by comparative analysis the conserved DNA sequences to a Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) database comparing more than 1 million species of bacteria and fungi.
